Public transit is an integral part of the design of any city. Without well managed and well planned transit systems, a city risks both detaching itself from neighbouring cities and isolating its communities that span across this entire city. With a city as large as Richmond Hill, residents rely on public transit for work, school, and recreation. The city is in a position to lobby the regional government and ensure that public transit is always properly funded, accessible, and supported. This includes ensuring that the Yonge subway extension is built so that travel to the city of Toronto is not overly reliant on motor vehicles. This will help reduce traffic and reduce emissions.
