Prof. Preston quoted in Toronto Star article about improving transit in the GTA

Prof. Preston (York University) was recently quoted in a Toronto Star article about "what transit in the GTA needs to keep up with Canada’s population boom".

Prof. Preston explained that "when newcomers first come to Canada, they are more likely to rely on public transit, cycling and walking than established immigrants and Canadian-born people...That means that expanding and investing in the TTC and regional transit, as well as building walkable, mixed-use neighbourhoods, will be essential for supporting more immigration."

She further argued that “if we’re going to have half a million people arrive every year, and we’re also trying to meet our climate goals, those people need to be able to live in places where they can either use transit, and it’s efficient to use transit, or they can walk to and from work.”
