TTC Customer Charter promises remain on track

8/2/13 6:00 AM

The results of our second quarter Customer Charter commitments are now posted on our website and I am pleased to say that we delivered on all eight targets.

In addition to acceptance of five more state-of-the-art Toronto Rocket subway trains into our fleet, highlights include progress on a number of projects designed to improve our overall service.

After extensive consultation with staff and union representatives, we have finalized the design of the new uniform for station staff and vehicle Operators, ready for rollout in 2014. We want our employees to wear the new uniform with pride so a lot of thought has gone into the design to make it both practical and smart. Look for an unveiling in the coming months!

Our security model is also being overhauled and we have held very positive discussions with the Toronto Police Service and its Board to reach agreement in principle to restore Special Constable status to our Transit Enforcement Officers (TEO) with a target implementation date of this fall.

Special Constable status will allow our TEOs to be much more effective in keeping customers and fellow staff safe and secure, working evermore closely with police.

At Lawrence West Station, work is well and truly underway to install an elevator and other easier access features. Meanwhile, our maintenance blitz of stations continues, including restoration of the terrazzo floors and cleaning of light fixtures across the subway network.

As I have said before, the most important target remains delivery of safe, punctual transit and I will discuss progress against this objective next week.
