Public transit is essential to accessing Toronto’s social and cultural
life, including necessary things like getting groceries or going to
work. Yet working class communities suffer from inadequate and
expensive, transit service. Different plans for transit reform have been
floated promising better and more efficient service. What should
Toronto’s working class communities make of these proposals? What are the key issues related to transit in the city, and the possibilities to
mobilize for change?
