Today, we join workers and riders across North America to celebrate Transit Worker Appreciation Day. The TTC has been in the news too often lately for the wrong reasons.
Violent incidents and declining ridership are a fact of life for us. Service cuts and fare increases will make the system more crowded, less reliable, and increase conflict. We know how hard members work every day to serve the people of Toronto.
Today, we are asking everyone to take a moment to say thank you to transit workers.
Workers and passengers are in this together. We need to respect and appreciate each other to keep Toronto moving comfortably, safely, and reliably.
