The Southwest Economic Alliance (SWEA) is an association of municipalities, businesses and other stakeholders in Southwestern Ontario striving to improve economic activity. SWEA has recognized that the region is losing its passenger transportation capacity at an alarming rate, including cutbacks in VIA Rail services. SWEA is launching an advocacy campaign to spur planning and reinvestment in passenger transportation across the region.
SWEA held a Passenger Transportation Summit in London, ON on November 14. Transport Action Ontario presented a paper entitled “Improving Inter-Urban Passenger Rail in Ontario”.
