Health & Safety

Public transit should be a safe space for everyone.

Run concurrent and sporadic tests on the heating and cooling and alternate precipitation management systems non-seasonally.

Create and enforce a mandate that all transit operators and fare inspectors have to undergo Anti-Oppression and Defence related training to support women and non-binary folk and create a safe space.

Make public when and how TTC buses and trains undergo cleaning and hygiene inspections.

Institute a "most-wanted" list and advisory group that is made up of women, non-binary folk, people of colour, and mental health advocates and survivors to create a system in which known predators may not act again.

Create an anonymised and accessible reporting system to allow passengers to report sexual harassment, assault, and people.
