Public Transit

A strong public transit system is key to making Ottawa a great city for everyone. Making public transit the first choice for transport options is exactly what we need to do.

We need to reverse the old mentality of bad transit planning like opting for the cheapest LRT stations and constant fare increases.

We can do this by:

  • Making serious equity improvements for Para Transpo, such as same-day booking, longer service hours, and allowing riders to travel together to the same destination
  • Revising OC Transpo routes to better reflect community needs and away from focusing on Monday to Friday, 9-5 commuters going between downtown and the suburbs.
  • Ensuring that Vanier has rapid transit options as a major neighbourhood of the city
  • Stopping annual fare increases and shifting the cost burden away from the fare box.
  • Eliminating fares for people who are receiving social assistance (OW/ODSP)
