TTC's Community Bus part of the city's future transit plan
You've probably never heard of it, but microtransit is about to be the hottest trend this season thanks to the TTC's new Community Bus pilot project.
The buses, a form of microtransit we might be seeing more of, function similar to regular buses in terms of fare rates. They're designated to specific areas of the city and offer service to local destinations only including community centres, hospitals, libraries and grocery stores.
While we were swept up in the fervor of other big-named transit projects, the TTC quietly launched a Community Bus pilot project back in September that would see service improvements on two of the existing routes. Today Mayor John Tory and TTC Chair Josh Colle spoke more about the project.
TTC Chair Josh Colle & I rode the 400 Lawrence Manor community bus this morning to highlight another way for people to use public transit. The community bus is a convenient, easy-to-use, option that connects Toronto residents to popular destinations in their neighbourhood. #TTC pic.twitter.com/Lxn1UxccRh— John Tory (@JohnTory) December 4, 2017
