Interview with Julia Szwarc of Free Transit Ottawa

What do you think of Ottawa’s bus system OC Transpo? Is it too expensive? Not convenient or reliable enough? Should it be free?

Julia Szwarc, a member of Free Transit Ottawa, wrote an article in the Leveller Spring 2019 issue called ‘Rethinking Ottawa’s Transit System: a bold proposal for free transit in a city designed for cars’. In my interview with her for Earthgauge Radio, we talk about what’s wrong with our transit system and how to fix it in a way that is better for people and the planet.

Free transit for all! Other cities are doing it, why can’t Ottawa?
