May 31st Rally – Fair Fares for the TTC

Join the Fair Fare Coalition and TTCriders for a rally at Nathan Phillips Square, Toronto City Hall, 12:00 Noon on Tuesday, May 31st.

We demand free fares for people on social assistance who are receiving Ontario Works (OW) and Ontario Disability Support (ODSP), and $50 fares for people on low incomes.

Here are 5 ways you can take action for affordable fares:

 

  1. Send a message to your elected official about this issue right now.
  1. Get some postcards and share them with your friends and at your local TTC stop.  Contact info@ttcriders.ca to pick up postcards.

 

  1. Get tips on speaking publicly about this issue and giving a deputation on it by coming out to our Scarborough training session May 12.  https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/civic-engagement-training-for-a-low-income-pass-tickets-24876312721

 

  1. Join our organizing committee.  Contact Karin at kd.meinzer@gmail.com.
  2.  Come to our rally May 31st.  RSVP now.

We’re also doing a training session in the west end, and an art party! Stay tuned.

A formula for low income fares will be debated at the TTC Commission meeting on May 31st. The Fare Fair Coalition and TTCriders, along with many allies and activists, have been fighting to lower TTC transit fares for low income people who rely on public transit to carry out all of the activities of daily life. Many are forced to choose between feeding the family and taking the bus.

The city has committed to a poverty-reduction strategy that includes low income fares. We demand that the city and the TTC live up to its responsibility for social equity and fairness.

Join us to help explain why we need low income passes, like many other cities in Canada and around the world. Participate in our rally along with people from across the city.

This is a key moment; help us demand that the city and province step up to the plate!

Join us for the rally and volunteer to make a deputation to TTC Commissioners Tuesday, May 31, 12:00 Noon, Nathan Phillips Square, City Hall

EVERYONE IN TORONTO SHOULD BE ABLE TO RIDE PUBLIC TRANSIT!
