Public transit is Worth It
According to the STM, a return trip using public transit once a week for a year is equivalent to the benefits provided by 52 trees and recycling for three weeks. These are just more examples supporting the environmentally-friendly public transit. There should be more funding for public transit. Public transit should get priority on the road. That means less space for cars, more space for buses, trams, trolley buses etc. Funds should make public transit less expensive and faster than cars. Federal, provincial and municipal governments need to do more to support public transit. It is the way of the future.
