Fun Poll: When did you start taking transit?

When did you first ride public transit?

The first time I was on transit, I was only knee-high to a grasshopper.

Story is, my mum used to take my on the subway in Toronto to get me to sleep when I was an infant so I’m a transit rider almost since birth!

But not everyone needs the roar of the tracks to get some shut eye as a wee babe so first time transit users can be of all ages and all walks of life.
