Against the YRT Increase sign now

To whom it may concern

As a patron of the York Region Transit system for the last six years, I have been subject to numerous price increases, missing buses, and hours waiting in cold weather. Nevertheless, I continued to appreciate the services that the YRT provided for me, and aside from the occasional rant or two, I did not have a problem with the way that they conducted business. That is, until they announced another price increase of 25 cents per fare on their website, the day before it happened. Now, I understood the past three increases, considering that gas prices were soaring to $1.20 a litre, but now that gas prices have decreased quite noticeably, I cant help but feel that this increase makes no sense.
The YRT website claims that the price increase is necessary, as they are being faced with raising maintenance and insurance costs, but with lower gas prices, why cant they keep the fare the same, and accommodate the extra money that would have otherwise been spent on gas, to their maintenance and insurance costs? The TTC is not only keeping their prices the same, which were already cheaper than York Regions, but they are also expanding their services with their new light-rail transit system.
York Region Transit is not offering anything more to its patrons. We are not getting more frequent buses, more comfortable buses, or even more bus routes. There is no reason for a fare increase.
I strongly encourage any willing patrons to immediately take action against the YRT, until a fair compromise is made.

    Overpriced for no improvements, cost of fuel is way down why the increase? It is less expensive to drive my own car now. What a way to lose ridership-way to go!
