STA has filed a complaint over the misleading briefing note that was used to sway Council’s July vote on the one-stop subway vs. 7-stop LRT.
We all know Mayor Tory and pro-subway councillors used this briefing note to push for the subway over a 24 – stop LRT network, so why won’t they admit they requested it? We are calling for an investigation of the process and for an independent, third-party review of the LRT option. Torontonians deserve to know the objective truth.

2017 Budget: Bad News for Transit Riders
Brief points about impacts on the 2017 budget for Scarborough transit riders:
- In July, City Council voted to cut the TTC budget by 2.6%. In order to meet the resulting budgetary shortfall, TTC fares are increasing for the 6th straight year in a row by 10 cents for tokens and metropasses starting January 2017.
- TTC service cuts across Toronto including the following Scarborough routes: 129 McCowan North, 43 Kennedy, 57 Midland, 133 Neilson, and 68 Warden.
- All Scarborough city councillors voted in favour of Mayor Tory’s budget cuts to the TTC.
- Still no funding for the Eglinton East LRT and the Sheppard East LRT is still on hold.
