Toronto – GTA Transit

Students across the Greater Toronto Area are uniting in a call for more affordable and accessible transit for post-secondary education students travelling across the GTA.

Ontario students pay the highest tuition fees in all of Canada. Coupled with the high cost of living, especially in Toronto, transit is becoming further out of reach for students. The cost of transit is compounded with costs of living, food, school supplies and family demands; making it more and more difficult for students to physically get to campus.

A transit survey was conducted, asking students to share their concerns and suggestion for what transit in the GTA should look like. A report from the survey’s findings were released and student activist use it to lobby transit decision-makers to make transit more affordable and accessible
