SOME GOOD NEWS FOR TORONTO TRANSIT FROM THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO

The TTC has been soldiering on despite the nastiness of COVID-19 in Canada’s largest city. You can still get from here to there via buses, streetcars and the subway. Premier Doug Ford has announced that the province will be giving up to $1.6-billion to municipalities to help public transit get through financial shortcomings. $400-million, a first phase of funding of that payout, will go to the Toronto Transit Commission. <Photo – Urban Toronto>It’s estimated that the TTC will still be short $700-million by the end of the year. Associate Minister of Transport for the Greater Toronto Area said “This additional funding will keep municipal transit systems running and will help keep trains, buses, and stations safe so people can feel confident in choosing public transit as they go back to work.”
