Stop Transit Cuts (December 4)

2125

Number of pass ups in October, 2017. Service reductions will only increase this


#2
Winnipeg transit riders pay the second highest proportion of transit costs in Canada. While fares are low, service is too


65 vs 222
Winnipeg’s Council is proposing to spend only $65 million on transit while Edmonton spends $220 million

  

The 2018 City budget will raise bus fares by 25 cents, while cutting service. This will only reduce mobility and add to the financial burden for seniors, students and others living on a fixed income.

 

 

Come to City Hall, 510 Main Street to show your concern
