OC-Transpo bus riders' union is on schedule
On August 5, 2010, we interviewed two members of the Ottawa-based OCTranspo Transit Riders' Union: New member and University of Ottawa student Nate (in-studio) and founding member and Carleton University student Ashton (by phone from Winnipeg).
It's all about access. The bus riders' union wants to work with both transit clients and the drivers' union to eliminate all exclusion based on class, income, neighbourhood, disability, race, gender... The union is based on the principle that transportation is an essential service to which all users must have no barriers to access.
