As Ontario's COVID-19 cases climb, some Toronto transit users are becoming frustrated with the lack of social distancing on buses, streetcars and the subway.

Recommendations for social distancing and stay-at-home orders are still in place in Toronto, and yet, transit remains crowded. 

Torontonians have taken to social media to share what they've seen.

TTCRiders, an organization representing riders of the TTC, teamed up with over a dozen social organizations across the city to pen a letter to Mayor John Tory. 

"Toronto has a historic opportunity to rapidly improve public transit by installing transit priority measures. It has never been more urgent to do so," the letter begins.

Among other things, they are requesting that bus service increase in areas with high COVID-19 positivity rates, to reduce overcrowding.

Narcity has reached out to the TTC for their response.
