Toronto, tell me your transit stories

While #TOpoli obsesses over the merits of LRT and subway—again—people who are just trying to live their lives are being punished for being female, or being non-white, or wearing a niqab, or kissing their boyfriend/girlfriend. And there are probably a lot of things I’m not considering because I’m a privileged, able-bodied white male.

Right now I want to know how your public transit system has failed you. Have you felt unsafe? Have you been thwarted by broken wheelchair ramps? Have you been harassed for being who you are? Have other things gone wrong that I can’t even conceive of? Please tell me.
