Class in session
More than 75 Grade 9 students from schools across the GTA spent the day at the TTC on Nov. 7.
The group of young visitors were taken through Transit Control, Harvey Shop and Bay Lower. They also heard lectures from Safety, Transit Enforcement and Special Investigations Unit staff.
Their visit concluded with remarks from CUPE Local 2 President Gaetano Franco and CEO Andy Byford. Both thanked the students for attending and all staff for their participation in Take Our Kids To Work Day.
“If anyone wants to work for the TTC, I can thoroughly recommend it,” Byford said, noting that some students were already eyeing his job.
More than 250,000 students across Canada participate in this career-learning initiative each year.
