Accelerating priority transit projects in the GTA to get people to where they want to go, reduce congestion, and drive economic growth and job creation
Our PC government is fulfilling our promise to get people where they want to go, when they want to get there.
Today, our government passed the Building Transit Faster Act, 2020, which will help accelerate the planning, design and construction process for four priority transit projects in the GTA to help get people to where they want to go, reduce congestion, and drive economic growth and job creation.
The projects include the new Ontario Line, the Yonge North Subway Extension to Markham and Richmond Hill, the improved three-stop Scarborough Subway Extension, and the Eglinton Crosstown West Extension to Pearson airport
“During consultations and throughout debate, we heard a common theme from a wide range of people who reinforced how important it is to not only build transit quickly, but to also get it right,” said Caroline Mulroney, MPP for York-Simcoe and Minister of Transportation. “That is why we’ve focused solely on eliminating the roadblocks that cause unnecessary delays, so we can deliver these major transit projects as quickly and cost effectively as possible.”
Working together with our partners, our PC government is building a world-class rapid transit system and developing transit-oriented communities with a greater variety of affordable housing options.
