Description:

This 25-year Regional Transportation Plan aims to improve regional transportation, bolster global competitiveness, protect the environment and enhance quality of life.

To date, $16 billion has been committed with projects underway. Ontario’s 2013-14 budget allocated $3.4 billion towards public transit infrastructure in the province, a large portion of which was allocated to this plan. Emissions reductions are the combined result of multiple initiatives:

  • The Big Move Regional Transportation Plan and Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe;
  • Passenger vehicle efficiency regulations;
  • freight truck speed limiter regulation;
  • municipal hybrid bus purchase and Green Commercial Vehicles Program;
  • Ontario ethanol regulation;
  • other related transportation initiatives.
