March 1-6 is Kindness Week across the GTA. The Human Kindness Project will hold a customer appreciation day on the TTC this Monday at Bloor-Yonge, Finch and Eglinton stations.
Student volunteers will be holding "kindness" placards and handing out treats to customers. Kindness Week is a weeklong program of the non-profit Human Kindness Project in partnership with the Toronto District School Board to encourage kindness through events across the city.
There are a number of ways TTC customers can help make the TTC the kinder way:
- Priority seating is for seniors, people with a disability and expectant mothers. Be sure to offer up your seat.
- Carry your knapsack by your side, not on your back, on crowded vehicles.
- Keep bags on your lap or on the floor by your feet. Seats are for people.
- Don't block the doors - move right into the vehicle to allow others to enter.
