Free Transit Edmonton launches transit week, a challenge to city leaders to ride public transit

A coalition of transit advocates launched a campaign Monday for free public transportation in Edmonton.

"We want to see public transit funded like our libraries, schools, hospitals and other public services — open and accepting of all, regardless of their ability to pay," said Laura Kruse an organizer with Free Transit Edmonton. 
The group argues free transit would increase ridership and help alleviate poverty; it also wants to see an improved transit system to make it more appealing and accessible for people to use every day.
