Ontario is providing $324 million in gas tax funding to 96 municipal transit systems this year.
The funding will help municipalities expand and improve public transit infrastructure, increase accessibility, buy more conventional and specialized transit vehicles, add more routes and extend hours of service.
This year, the Ontario government made its Gas Tax Program permanent to help municipalities improve public transit, ease traffic congestion and reduce air pollution. The change was made as part of the 2013 Budget to provide stability for municipalities and help them plan.
Investing in public transit is part of the Ontario government's plan to help reduce congestion, strengthen the economy and build a fair and prosperous society.
