GTTA and the MoveOntario 2020 Plan – Phase 2

It looks like the GTTA has received funding for the following projects. Maybe I am still in disbelief until I see shovels in the ground? I am not in favour of all of the plans listed, but this definitely will be some good news for once for public transit in the Greater Toronto Area. What seems to be lacking is funding for Transit City, other than the head start funding. What is interesting is the Durham BRT funding, which will be a definite boost to transit in Pickering, Ajax, Whitby and Oshawa.

  1. Nope; the GTTA is requesting funding from the province for these projects. The first round of Quick Wins, back in July or so, was approved, so it bodes well for these – but the GTTA Quick Win request does not automatically guarantee funding.
