Free public transit could challenge reliance on cars 6.10.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Yves Engler Free public transit could combat both economic inequality and climate disturbances. And, if paid for by fees on automobility, fare-less transit could be part of a serious challenge to private, car-centred transit and urban planning. At Toronto's first mayoral debate Saron Gebresellassi called for fare-free transit. By detailing a bold proposal the left-wing mayoral candidate  steered  the other candidates to bemoan ballooning fare costs and suggest eliminating some of them. Gebresellassi's plan also garnered significant media attention. In an article titled " Making Toronto   transit free isn't realistic now. But it's a terrific idea," Toronto Star columnist Edward Keenan offered an informative rundown of the argument. But, as is wont in the dominant media, Keenan implicitly downplays the climate crisis and the importance of ditching the private automobile. Rather than being a long-term objective, free public transit should be viewed as a short- to medium-term tool for shifting away from our ...

In D!ONNE Renée's Toronto, everyone could live and thrive 20.9.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Phillip Dwight Morgan For mayoral candidate D!ONNE Renée, Toronto has yet to become a world-class city, a place where people thrive. Despite being one of the wealthiest cities in North America, Toronto still presents many barriers to people's livelihoods. Renée recounts her many friends who have visited the city from other places in the world and asked, "how do people rely on a transit system that is unreliable? There's a bus pole with a sign and a schedule but the bus doesn't come." She adds, "people come from other countries and they tell me this because their expectation of Toronto is the expectation that I have too: that transit should be coming in and meeting on time. It works in their country, why not here?" While reliable transit is not the only hallmark of a healthy city, Renée contends that Toronto's ailing transit system is indicative of the city's mismanagement of funds and its resultant failure to ensure community wellness. Using Toronto's controversial PRESTO fare gates as an example, Renée ...

Greyhound closures show it's time for a national transportation network 17.7.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Growing up in small-town Saskatchewan, I remember being in awe every time I happened on Main Street when the Greyhound bus was in town. So huge (compared to my kid stature); so exciting, with people coming and going. The bus always parked in front of the Town and Country Cafe -- so those waiting for the bus or those on a stopover could have a coffee or something to eat. The bus arrived and left often -- twice a day if my recollection is right. There was the 8 a.m. bus and the 8 p.m. -- morning and night you could hop on a bus and stop pretty much anywhere along the line of small towns and small urban centres. That could have been the scene in any Prairie town of the day -- and stopovers could have been near the Paris Cafe, or Wong’s Cafe, or coffee row anywhere. Farmers and residents alike planned their trips on the bus, and also used it to receive and ship parts for crucial farm equipment or packages for birthdays and holidays. Later, the bus only stopped once a day, and briefly, at an outlying gas ...

VIA Bus could replace disappearing Greyhound service 17.7.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Politics in Canada This past week Greyhound Canada announced it was shutting down intercity bus service in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The decision is to take effect in a scant three months. It denies citizens of Western Canada basic transport services, making it difficult or even impossible for people with lower incomes to travel. Reactions of outrage from working-class Canadians who depend on bus service for their livelihood and well-being were met with a firm denial of any responsibility from the Trudeau Liberals, who suggested it was a provincial problem only. Instead of ducking the question of what to do to ensure safe, affordable, reliable public transportation in Western Canada, the Ottawa Liberals need to recognize that the Greyhound decision will contribute to Canadian economic disintegration. Moving goods to people in those towns, villages and cities affected by the shutdowns -- 60 localities in B.C. alone -- will be more expensive and difficult. Following a 1917 Royal Commission, ...
