A Campaign for Free Public Transit in Toronto

The Bullet : "Free transit would be a critical step in addressing climate change. It would help reduce urban sprawl, discouraging developers from building on farmlands and outer suburban areas.

Fare-free transit would reduce the costs of road maintenance as well as the environmental pollution and health issues caused by our current dependence on private cars. Everyone would benefit, even motorists, who would have less-crowded roads. Governments currently provide large subsidies for roads and highways for cars and trucks. Our tax dollars should benefit the common good."

South Huron: Lack of #publictransit "holding us back"

Lakeshore Advance: "Grand Bend’s Baillie, co-chair of the Huron Shores Transit steering committee, said the initiative began in August. He said the region has been identified as lacking in public transportation, a reality that has acted as an impediment to growth, social mobility, quality of life and employment.

“It’s holding us back,” Baillie said of the lack of public transportation. The Ministry of Transportation has identified the Huron Shores Transit area as underserved by public transportation."
