In Ontario, transit riders pay a big portion of what it costs to keep it the system operating. That's why the fare box matters so much, and why fare evasion recently prompted an enforcement blitz by TTC. But, as usual, nothing about transit is simple. Joining The Agenda for what is always a lively discussion on Toronto's transit issues is Metrolinx president and CEO Phil Verster; Shelagh Pizey-Allen executive director of TTCriders, a membership-based transit advocacy organization; Jay Pitter, co-editor of "Subdivided: City-building in an Age of Hyper Diversity;" and Shawn Micallef, Toronto Star Columnist, co-founder of "Spacing" magazine.
