  • Profitability of transit is hard to truly measure. Every person on transit is a person not in a car. This reduces overall wear on the roadways and can reduce demand for more lanes/lane widdening projects.

    Transit produces leas carbon than cars so we should incentivizing people to use transit. Transit can also reduce the need for parking, provide better access for some disabilities, provide better acccess for people too young or too old to safely drive.

    Transit when implemented well can also be used to support denser housing without needing a ton of new 6 lanes roads to service that housing. I think good transit could be a really valuable and important tool in reducing Canada’s emissions from transportation while supporting denser housing to end the housing crisis. It would also provide freedom of mobility to a wider range of people than cars.
