The Make Transit Work campaign is a partnership of the UVSS, the Camosun College Students’ Society (CCSS), and Unifor Local 333 (the Greater Victoria Bus Drivers’ Union).
We believe that transit is the way of the future, and students are key in moving towards that future. Students are the largest demographic of transit riders in the region, and we believe that student issues should inform transit decision-making.
An effective, free transit system would massively reduce transportation emissions, help us meet our local climate targets, while building affordability and accessibility. But without a grassroots movement fighting for the necessary investments in public transit, our governments will continue to invest in highway expansions and personal car parking.
