Transit systems grateful for federal support


The Canadian Urban Transit Association said it is grateful for the support announced by the prime minister today and looks forward to working with governments on the details.

CUTA CEO Marco D’Angelo said the prime minister’s specific mention of public transit underlines the essential role it has played since the pandemic began and the role it will play in the recovery.

“Today is a good day for transit systems and transit riders. On their behalf, I thank the prime minister for including public transit in the recovery package,” he said. “Public transit is essential to essential workers and will be pivotal in building a sustainable recovery. We hope provinces move swiftly to get this welcome relief to transit systems so they can keep Canadians and their communities running.”
