YorkU transit situation is one of “pay double, or walk”: NDP Transit Critic

January 9, 2019

“This week, a transit cut at York University kicks in, making things a little worse and more expensive for thousands of York U students, faculty and staff,” writes Ontario NDP Transit Critic Jessica Bell. Bell notes that while it took 10 years for the Toronto subway extension to reach YorkU, a failure to integrate the subway route with existing buses means that York Region buses that used to travel to the centre of the YorkU campus no longer do so. Students from the university have also expressed frustration with the change, while Star columnist Ed Keenan writes that the situation marks a failure of cooperation between municipal and provincial governments.
