    Default Hamilton transit doesn't need privatization

    An arm's length commission would solve HSR's problems -- not privatization. As an HSR bus driver for almost 29 years, and the president of ATU 107 -- which represents HSR employees -- I'm all too familiar with HSR's shortcomings.

    Default The Bullet: Public Transit, Privatization and the Canada Infrastructure Bank

    via socialistproject.ca

    The Canada Infrastructure Bank (CIB) will create a pipeline of privatization for our public transit systems. Corporations will be able to extract long-term profit from public transit fares and public subsidies. Our governments subsidize public transit because it’s critical infrastructure for our communities: to get us from place to place, to reduce traffic congestion, and to green our environment. When we allow corporations to plan, finance, operate, maintain and own public transit, we funnel ridership fares and government funding into corporate coffers.

    Default What's New: Region and travellers best served if airport a public asset

    via socialistproject.ca

    The development of Pearson International Airport as a Greater Golden Horseshoe Area (GGHA) transit hub or 'Union Station North' is inevitable. Regional suburban growth simply demands greater connectivity among suburban cities and easier access to downtown Toronto. The 50,000 airport workers also need better access to the airport via transit. The question remains how to pay for not only the hub at Pearson but the new lines feeding into it.
