No snow tires on TTC buses: Riders at risk?

Imagine being on your way somewhere and the TTC bus you’re in is not moving, because it can’t get up the hill in the snow. That is exactly what happened to many passengers on Monday February 2, when at least one bus on York Mills Road east of Yonge Street was struggling to get up the hill, due to the 22 centimetres of snow that walloped Southern Ontario overnight Sunday and into the morning commute. The TTC buses do not use snow tires.

Councillor says no connection between YRT and TTC hikes

A City of Vaughan councilor says York Region Transit fare increases are not tied to recent TTC fare hikes. The YRT website indicated YRT patrons will face a 25-cent fare increase in January of next year. This follows the recent announcement of fare increases at the Toronto Transit Commission. Ward 5 Coun. Alan Shefman denies there is a connection.
