InsideToronto.com reports that the city’s transit commission, Toronto Transit Commission, has pledged to do better at serving their customers. According to the report, the TTC has been under fire for poor customer service in addition to a 25 cent increase in fares and a prevalent service interruptions. TTC Chair Adam Giambrone apologized for their low standards of customer service and said, “We all know that it went viral on the Internet, and we found that the TTC was at the root of a lot of ridicule across the system,” Giambrone said. “These issues really highlight a need for us to focus on where we go in the future. We need to modernize our fare technology, we need to work with employees to enrich their jobs and we need to use our resources better.”
As TTC works to improve its customer service, what initiatives can they implement to ensure customer service sustainability? Could these initiatives be shared with other major metropolitan transit organizations?
