On December 12, 2013, the Ontario Transit Investment Strategy Advisory Panel, chaired by Anne Golden, issued its final report. It made 20 recommendations for how new transportation projects in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) should be funded.
As a part of the Transit Panel’s public consultation process, the Move the GTHA collaborative, which includes Transport Action Ontario, made a submission to the Panel, shown as another posting on this website.
Move the GTHA compliments the Panel for its excellent work under a short timeline, and for recommending a combination of funding sources that will raise a much needed $1.7 to $1.8 billion annually when fully implemented.
With the reports by Metrolinx and the Panel now in hand, Move the GTHA calls upon the Ontario Government and the opposition parties to work constructively to arrive at a resolution on transportation funding sources.
