By Transport Action Ontario | Press Releases and Open Letters
Decades of underinvestment have left the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) with an inadequate transportation network and one of the longest average commute times in North America – reducing the region’s economic competitiveness, impairing our health and environment, and limiting the amount of time we spend with families and friends.
Transport Action Ontario is one of about a dozen prominent non-government organizations that have formed the Move the GTHA coalition. The objective is to support the Ontario government as they introduce new dedicated transportation revenue tools, such as a regional sales tax or regional fuel tax. Recently the coalition, together with many other organizations, released an open letter to the GTHA’s elected officials calling on them to support Metrolinx’s transit investment strategy.
