TTC 2020 Capital and Operating Budget do little to address mounting pressures on our aging SRT and overcrowded buses in Scarborough :
- No money for the Eglinton East LRT.
- No money for bus only lanes, priority signalling and queue jump lanes this year.
- A ten cent fare increase but this only improves service on two bus routes in Scarborough.
- $18.2 million to study extending the life of the SRT but no money for full time, prioritized bus service when the SRT breaks down for good.
- No funding to make Warden station accessible.
