A proposed funding increase will help reduce wait times and crowding, he said.
The mayor chose the Davisville carhouse — a TTC garage at Yonge St. and Davisville Ave. — to make the announcement.
City council will finalize its 2016 budget later this month.
Here are the highlights from Tory’s remarks:
•$50 million in “new annualized funding” for the TTC will target congestion, and improve service reliability.
•Six new work cars, more staff for repairs, and more subway cars for Line 1 are in the works for 2016.
•Tory wants the TTC to implement an “aggressive” strategy to reduce subway delays by 50% in three years.
•TTC customer satisfaction hit an all-time high of 81% last year. “We haven’t achieved perfection but we’ve achieved improvement in service that I have noticed as a customer,” Tory said.
