As noted in a previous Wood Bull blog post, a Transit Panel was established by the Province in September 2013 to review Metrolinx’s Investment Strategy to fund public transit across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.
The Transit Panel released its first discussion paper "Hard Truths about Transit in the Toronto Region" on 21 Oct 2013.
Two further discussion papers will be released on "The Transit We Need" and "How We Pay for Transit Expansion". These discussion papers are intended to provide a frame of reference for the feedback that the Transit Panel is seeking.
Four public consultation sessions are scheduled for November 2013. See schedule and details here.
