Boosting Intermodal Truck/Train Freight to Reduce GHG Emissions

By Transport Action Ontario | Intercity Rail and Bus

Nov 15

With the conclusion of the COP26 conference, the issue of Canada’s Greenhouse Gas transportation emissions, from both personal and freight transportation, is front-and-centre. Transport Action Ontario has written a letter to the federal government discussing the alternative of truck/train intermodal freight versus continued highway expansion, and the need for federal involvement in what is largely private enterprise.

We felt that policy-driven publicly-funded incentives to build and expand state-of-the-art intermodal services in the Windsor-Quebec corridor are needed.
