Londoners ride transit for various reasons and LTC’s new Your Transit campaign aims to highlight some of them. In bus shelters throughout the city – be sure to spot the following posters showing how Londoners rely on transit:
Environment – Fighting Climate Change – Your Planet, Your Transit
It has consistently been proven that transit ridership has positive effects on the reduction of greenhouse gases and other air pollutants. Transit also helps reduce the amount of land needed for road space and parking, thus helping preserve the natural landscape. Investment in transit mobility can lead to reduced health care costs and an overall healthier community.
Convenience – Enjoying Your City – Your Time, Your Transit
Since 2015 approximately 90,000 service hours have been added to the conventional transit system. 2019 represents the fifth and final year of the current five year service plan, which focused heavily on addressing issues such as overcrowding and schedule adherence as well as right-sizing the system. Additionally, having real-time information available through LTC’s Infoweb system and Google Maps makes it easier for riders to obtain the arrival of their next bus recognizing schedules are merely guidelines as traffic and construction consistently affect LTC’s schedule adherence. An added benefit of utilizing Google Maps is the ability for riders to plan their route.
Safety – A Great Night Out With Friends – Your Way Home, Your Transit
The availability of public transit services provides the community with a safe, convenient and affordable way to get home after a fun night out.
Independence – Maintaining Your Independence – Your Community, Your Transit
The availability of a reliable public transit service provides access to the community for all residents, including those who rely solely on transit as their mode of transportation, but also those who choose to take transit.
Economical – Getting to Work Without Car Payments – Your Journey, Your Transit
With the cost of a monthly bus pass substantially cheaper than the cost of a car loan and insurance, transit is the most viable economic option for Londoners.
However you travel around this great city, remember London Transit is Your Transit!
