Government Announces Transit Funding for Municipalities

2019-01-09 10:48:30 AM

Minister of Transportation Jeff Yurek yesterday announced that the Government is providing $364 million in funding from Ontario’s gas tax program to 107 municipalities across the promise to improve or expand their public transit systems. 

Funding for Ontario’s gas tax program is determined by the number of litres of gasoline sold in the province. The program provides municipalities with two cents per litre of provincial gas tax revenues. Municipalities receiving gas tax funding must use these funds towards their public transit capital and/or operating expenditures, at their own discretion, including upgrading transit infrastructure, increasing accessibility, purchasing transit vehicles, adding more routes and extending hours of service.
