Transit is a critical issue for many people in Toronto, as in all major urban areas. More is at stake than reducing traffic congestion and gridlock. Free transit opens the door to a broader transformation of urban life and the current social system. Our 'Red-Green' vision is socialist, based on the working class, environmentally just, internationalist, and transformative.
Demanding Free Transit Poses Key Questions:
How can Free Transit help transform our car-dominated transit system?
How would it be financed?
How would it challenge government austerity and fight for good green jobs?
How much would Free Transit support global climate justice?
How can transit users and transit workers together push for Free Transit?
Could Free Transit networks be generous public spaces realizing the full diversity of our city?
