Re:?TTC?fare increase

 

As a graduate student at the University of Toronto living on my own and paying my own way I depend on the TTC every day to get me back and forth to school. Being that my finances are already stretched to their limits, I have to say it is disheartening to think that come January they are going to have to be stretched even farther.

I feel that the purpose of public transit in general is to provide the public with an affordable and convenient way of getting around the city.

In the case of the TTC, however, transit is not very convenient because of the overcrowded vehicles and now it is making it so it is no longer an affordable alternative either — so why not drive?
