Meeting with Steeles L’Amoreaux Action for Neighbourhood Change

On July 21, 2010 we met with residents from the Steeles L’Amoreaux ANC. The residents are very supportive of mobilizing to getting better transit to their community because their commute times can be very long.

One resident said that on a good day it takes two hours to get from Birchmount and Finch to Yonge and Bloor. Another resident pointed out that the fares are too high and the service is infrequent. The residents were very interested in working with the Public Transit Coalition and want to ensure their community has the opportunity to see the benefits that more transit brings.

They are interested in arranging MPP meetings and letter writing campaigns to get transit on the agenda for the 2011 Provincial elections.
