We see an urgent need for Council to ask staff to report back on area rating of property taxes for transit with a focus on understanding how it limits expansion of transit in suburbs, how provincial legislation changes impact area rating, and what an urban/rural split instead of former municipality split as it currently works would improve fairness for low income tax payers.

I think its important that we recognize that area rating is whats causing the bulk of the funding problems but as noted here there is a need to recognize the urban rural split and correct area rating in transportation rather than eliminate it.
