CBC >> Analysis: 4 ways the 2018 budget might be fake

By Joanne Chianello

Like some other cities, Ottawa has seen a decline in the number of people using public transit.

Whether it's construction, unsatisfactory service or the introduction of Uber, fewer people rode OC Transpo this year. In fact, the transit operation is forecasting $8.5 million less in revenue for 2017 than expected.

And yet, for 2018, the city is counting on taking in $11.2 million more than OC Transpo expects to make in 2017.

Where will this money come from?

Coun. Tobi Nussbaum would like to know.
