Metrolinx cancels YorkU GO bus routes: fight for free and accessible transit!

Starting Jan. 5, GO buses will no longer enter the York campus. GO buses formerly servicing our campus will be redirected to the Highway 407 TTC station, and the York bus loop will sit empty. Thousands of students who rely on these buses every day will have to ride the subway from the station to get to campus. Thanks to this service change, commute times will be even longer for GO bus users, and they will have to pay an additional fare on top of the hundreds they already pay each month. Students who commute five days a week will spend an extra $60 a month if they use a Presto transit card, or an extra $130 without.

Ford’s mandate is in reality an anti-protest law which aims to clamp down on students rightly protesting fascists and racists on campus.
