City of Toronto and Metrolinx Seek Public Input for Transportation Planning
February 1, 2013
TORONTO – Toronto’s gridlock is getting worse. Every commuter in the GTA loses an average of $1,300 per year in personal time due to congestion. To tackle our mobility woes, the City of Toronto and Metrolinx are both holding public consultations throughout the city and region this spring. Join and have your say!
With an average commute time of 82 minutes, our region is currently among the worst in North America for daily commute times – worse than even Los Angeles, New York City and Chicago. Through investments in public transit and better city planning, we can tackle the gridlock.
The public engagement will support and inform the review of the City’s Official Plan transportation policies; the development of a new long-term transportation plan; and the development of a funding and investment strategy. Now is your chance to share your ideas.
