Patrick Johnstone: "You may have heard TransLink is doing a Fare Review process. I wrote a bit about this a few months ago after attending a stakeholders meeting. The next phase of the process is meant to begin in the Fall according to the TransLink webpage, but I recently read a story that brought to mind one of my pet peeves about the transit fare system, and an idea that I think we need to adopt.
It is time we stop charging youth for using Transit."

And since Climate Change is undeniable, that alone is reason enough. Please see theTyee.ca series for more on that: https://thetyee.ca/Views/2007/
