The Toronto Star has published an opinion/commentary piece authored by Peter Miasek of Transport Action Ontario and Gideon Foreman of the David Suzuki Foundation. It outlines the three big challenges in achieving real transportation improvements as outlined in the Metrolinx draft regional transportation plan. These are: too much politics in transit planning, need for new revenue tools and disconnected land use decisions. These challenges need to be addressed to achieve the transportation benefits promised in the draft plan.
