TORONTO, Ontario — The governments of Canada and Ontario are investing in 11 newly approved projects that will support the growth of Toronto’s public transit system.
Union Station will see many improvements, including signs and wayfinding, lighting and security. A modelling study will be undertaken on King Street to prioritize and improve downtown streetcar operations.
In addition, a land bridge study will be undertaken at Exhibition Place and Ontario Place to help identify transit routing options and enhance the connectivity between local and regional transit hubs, states a release issued by Infrastructure Canada.
The federal government is providing more than $30 million, and the City of Toronto will provide the balance of funding. The investments are part of an agreement between Canada and Ontario for the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund.
