The Government of Ontario is consulting on information and ideas on modernizing intercity bus service. This is in response to the critical state of the industry, with declining service, ridership and profitability.
The Southwestern Ontario Transportation Alliance (SWOTA), of which Transport Action Ontario is a key member, has made a submission to this consultation. It focussed on the proven best practices for integrated passenger rail and bus networks, as documented in our Network Southwest plan. The submission makes several recommendations on how to modernize the bus regulatory regime.
