Metrolinx draft regional transportation plan:
Public roundtables, October 5 to November 8



0.0_rtp-homepage_header_v0.jpg

Every year, the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area attracts more than 110,000 new residents, which means more than 10 million people will call it home by 2041, from seven million today. That’s equivalent to adding more than the population of Greater Vancouver in just 25 years. Metrolinx and its local, regional and provincial partners are planning for that future by developing the next regional transportation plan.

The plan outlines how governments, transit agencies, businesses, institutions, civic organizations and the public can work together to continue building a better transportation system. An integrated transportation network would support a high quality of life, a prosperous and competitive economy and a safe environment in our region. Now Metrolinx has developed a draft plan for partners, stakeholders and the public to review.

The draft outlines strategies and priority actions to provide a blueprint for achieving the vision of a connected and more efficient region by 2041.

If Metrolinx can fully achieve its goals, the plan would:

  • increase the length of frequent rapid transit routes by more than 20 times;

  • increase the percentage of people living in walking distance of frequent rapid transit by 3.8 times;
  • double the number of jobs in walking distance of frequent rapid transit;
  • Result in 700,000 more peak-period transit trips — a 55 percent increase over 2011;

  • decrease per-capita greenhouse-gas emissions from automobile trips and decrease overall emissions;
  • double the length of dedicated cycling facilities in the region;
  • double the dedicated cycling routes through a regional cycling network;
  • double the number of walking and cycling trips; and
  • ddd more than 900 lane-kilometres of high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes to the region’s highway network.

You can input your feedback about the draft and what moves you on-line until November 17. You can also attend in person one of the six public roundtable meetings around the region.
