Consultations for the upcoming budget are underway across the city. The Ottawa Transit Riders group is advocating for a fare freeze. We believe that long-suffering transit riders should not be made to pay more for poor service.
Advocates of better, more accessible, more affordable transit are encouraged to attend the upcoming budget consultations to make our voices heard.
