Feeling like sardines on a Toronto bus or subway train? Frustrated because of signal problems during rush hour? These issues facing commuters on a daily basis were the subject of an event called “#FundTheTTC Day of Action”, hosted by the transit advocacy group, TTCriders.

This event called on commuters to demand more funding from their local city councillors for the TTC in the 2020 city budget. It took place in five subway stations: Dufferin, Kennedy, Lawrence West, St. George and Coxwell, between 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., except at St. George, where it took place in the morning between 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
