October 3, 2019 | By |

IMFG has published a new report in their Perspectives Papers series entitled Transit in the Greater Toronto Area: How to Get Back on the Rails.

From the Executive Summary:

The GTA needs fit-for-purpose processes to make transit decisions. It needs political leadership that respects evidence of what works. It needs to learn from others, while recognizing that every city-region has distinctive characteristics. It needs to act decisively with more focus and discipline, and yet also with greater inclusiveness.
