While the province has initiated the current Winnipeg Transit funding crisis, the city has been neglecting our transit service for over a decade. They need to hear a strong, clear message from citizens across the board: that city council must preserve existing funding levels for transit service, not raise fares, and increase overall investment in service.
City councillors have already received hundreds of emails via our website to this effect (email them here to keep it up!) — but taking the time to call them sends a much stronger message.
Phone your councillor (and Mayor Bowman) to let them know transit is a priority to you as a voter and that the service cuts and nearly 10% fare increase are unacceptable.
