Do you think TTCriders should win Livegreen Toronto's Greenest Group Award? Yes? Vote now.

TTCriders is in the running for the Livegreen Toronto Awards.
We have a great shot of winning this competition as improving public transit is a fantastic way to tackle climate change and improve air quality.  We also have a massive list of 16,000 pro-transit subscribers and a group of dedicated and passionate people and members who are supportive of our cause.
We need your help.

WHY VOTE FOR US? is an all-volunteer membership-based group of passionate transit users. We want a great public transit system and affordable fares for all Torontonians.
Climate change is our greatest environmental threat. We must reverse the surge of killer hurricanes, drought, floods, and heat waves. But how?
Reduce car use.   Cars and light duty trucks account for 28% of Toronto's total output of climate-causing greenhouse gas emissions.  Torontonians will reduce their car-use if there’s a alternative.  That alternative is a reliable, affordable, fast, and expansive public transit system.  TTCriders is committed to engaging the thousands of people who ride the TTC and working with them to champion the green and sensible public transit solution. 
TTCriders has a track record of success. Since our founding in 2010, TTCriders has reached over to over 50,000 people and successfully campaigned for the approval of more light rail rapid transit lines which includes the construction of new light rail lines to Scarborough and Finch, as well as the buildout of the underground Eglinton crosstown light rail transit line.  According to TTC reports, once these lines are built, roughly 53 million annual car trips will be avoided.
But we must build on that success.
TTCriders is tackling our toughest environmental issue in the most strategic way. And we’re solving gridlock, keeping fares affordable, reducing smog emissions, and engaging Torontonians in the process.  Vote for us.
