Another Victory on Transit

In early January it came to light that the city was going to change a $2.50 fee for online ordering of low income transit passes. To again ask low income people to pay more or alternatively to ask people with disabilities to make a trip to city hall and stand in a long line to avoid the fee makes little sense. Because of the relationships we have built with media – they reached out to us to respond – and we did. Councillor Chahal also spoke out again this fee, then Councillor Farrell raised the issues with administration. The result is that the fee how now been reversed, keeping transit affordable for our city’s most vulnerable residents.
