The 2005 recipient of the Jane Jacobs Prize, Steve Munro has been “a passionate and unwavering advocate for the improvement of Toronto’s transit system for more than 35 years.” – Ideas That Matter

Munro’s blog, stevemunro.ca, is arguably the best way to stay informed about public transit in the GTA.

Since his membership in “Streetcars for Toronto” in 1972, Munro has consistently been one of the most important voices on transit issues in Toronto.

In the years since the dark ages of Mike Harris and Mel Lastman, transit has become a major issue at both the municipal and provincial levels, and Steve Munro has been one of the relentless advocates who has kept the issue high in public awareness.

He writes for Spacing magazine, and began his blog 4 years ago (be warned – reading it is a humbling experience for anyone who thinks they are well informed on transit issues in Toronto).

With the inevitable increase in the expense of operating a personal motorcar as peak oil costs begin to bite, moving around Toronto will increasingly involve public transit.

If you are interested in the shape of the future of local transport, listening to Steve Munro is a very good place to start.

He’s also a member of the Toronto-Danforth community!
