A well-functioning transit system grows the economy, reduces air pollution, and creates inclusive communities. Today, Infrastructure Minister Amarjeet Sohi announced one of the largest bus purchase and rebuild projects for the City of Toronto. We are partnering with the Province of Ontario to purchase 1,043 new buses and revitalise 695 current buses with the TTC. Overall, we’re investing $28.7 billion in public transit over 12 years, including expanded light rail transit, subway lines, and more buses across the country.
I’m proud to have helped secure more funding for two great projects in Spadina-Fort York with today’s transit announcement: $490,000 for the Bentway Improvements and $750,000 for the King Street Pilot Implementation. Find out more here.
