Public transit in Quebec seriously underfunded
Quebec public transit is a victim of its own success, says TRANSIT,* a provincial transit advocacy group. According to the group, our public transit systems don't have the money they need to respond to the growing demand for their services.
The group is calling for a five-fold increase in funding to meet the needs of users. One of its recommendations * is to increase the carbon tax that finances Quebec's Green Fund. This could help meet the goal of increasing ridership by 40% from now until 2020.
