Across the country, transit agencies are on the brink of collapsing or being forced to cut service routes and jobs because of the impacts of COVID-19. Public transit isn’t just about how we can get from one place to another. It’s about accessibility and disability; bridging divides between urban, suburban and rural transportation; policing, racism and migrant justice; workers’ rights; austerity cuts and privatization of public services; public health in a time of pandemic; Indigenous rights; social injustice; and the climate crisis.

We’ll hear from grassroots organizers about these important intersections and the work that’s happening in many communities to build a just recovery and a GND for public transit, as well as how people can get involved. Speakers include:

- John Di Nino (ATU Canada)
- Zainab Hussein (TTC Riders)
- Sony Rai (Sustainable Vaughan)
- Laura Kruse (Free Transit Edmonton)
- Nick Kynoch (Guelph Transit Worker, member of ATU 1189)

Hosted by The Council of Canadians.
