Ana Bailao Vows To Reverse Cuts To Transit, Says Can Convince Ontario To Pay Its Share

This morning, speaking alongside Councillors Chris Moise and Nick Mantas, Ana Bailão made the following statement to support transit riders in Scarborough:

“I support building a dedicated bus route where the Scarborough SRT currently is. 

As a Councillor, and as Deputy Mayor, I have been a consistent champion for Scarborough residents who rely on transit. I am proud to have voted in favour of the Scarborough subway – a service many Toronto residents already have access to in neighborhoods across the city.

Scarborough residents need fast, reliable and convenient transit service. While this project is a provincial responsibility, Scarborough residents can’t afford to wait. That is why, as Mayor, I will have the City immediately fund the preliminary work needed to transform the SRT into a dedicated bus route, while continuing efforts to secure funding from the province. 

At a time when our City is facing historic budget challenges, I am the only candidate in this election who has a track record of securing billions in investment from other governments, and the relationships to be able to secure a fair deal for Toronto. 

I am focused this election on ensuring services like the TTC are safe, reliable, clean, and convenient. That is why I was the first candidate to talk about bringing cell service across the transit system. I will reverse all transit cuts – which disproportionately impact Scarborough – I will hire more staff, expand security camera coverage, increase cleaning schedules, and will make sure transit riders can finally tap to pay for transit fares.” – Ana Bailão
