Free Calgary Transit During Pandemic

Rev. Anna Greenwood-Lee, spokeswoman for the Calgary Alliance for the Common Good, said free transit during this time would be an ideal measure in the short term.

“I think tons of people who are shift workers and those who work minimum wage jobs, or people that are going to feel the financial crisis crunch during this pandemic, and the more we can do to help them, the better,” she said.

“Making transit free is kind of one less thing that people have to worry about.”

Our Board Chair Anna Greenwood-Lee was interviewed as part of this LiveWire Calgary article around the importance of low-income transit users being offered an opportunity for free transit during the pandemic.
