A committment to Toronto transit riders from the T.T.C. – which says it will complete 38 new customer initiatives for 2015.
The plan includes a promise to accept debit and credit card payments for single rides – at all collector booths – by the summer.
The initiatives focus on modernizing the T.T.C. – as part of the service’s third Customer Charter released today.
Other items on the list include implementing all-door boarding on every streetcar route – and enabling WiFi on the “U” portion of Line 1 from St. George to Bloor-Yonge stations- by spring.
T.T.C. Chair, Councillor Josh Colle says he believes the Charter holds the transit commission and employees “to task.”
He adds, “I know that the media will be here next year with a list in hand, telling us which ones we did meet or did not meet.”
T.T.C. officials admit that seven of the 39 initiatives on last year’s Charter list – weren’t completed.
