Transit is a public good like public education, something everyone benefits from regardless of whether they have children in the system or not. Changing the public perception of the purpose of transit is just as important as improving service in outlying areas… - Highwater

How true Highwater. Some people seem to think people ride public transit for kicks or something. Most people ride public transit to get to work, school, etc…

Changing the way we look at transit will perhaps lead people to realise it is in essence a corporate subsidy. As for what is in it for the rich, well I guess we could eliminate all public transit and then let people see how long it takes to get from their McMansion in Aurora to their office in downtown Toronto??? That might help them figure it out.
