Media coverage of transit issues

If we want City Hall to make changes regarding funding and oversight of OC Transpo, we need to get people talking about transit. And so far this year, it’s been easy. From the terrible accident at Westboro station to the drumbeat of dissatisfaction on social media, transit woes have pushed themselves to the forefront of conversation about city activities.

Here are some links to recent interviews on transit:
