New report reveals LRT is the ‘Greener Way’ for TTC

Clearing the Air

Last week, TEA and TTCriders released Clearing the Air on the TTC, a report with key recommendations for the future of the TTC and the new Council.

The report notes that – per dollar spent – Light Rail Transit (LRT) emits less than half the greenhouse gases of subways. Also, because LRT is less expensive and faster to build, it reaches more people and gets more cars off the road, sooner than subways.

The report received a flurry of media attention, including TV and radio interviews and a number of print media articles.Read the Executive Summary and download the full report from our website here.
