TRANSPORTATION POLICY AND PLANNING PROGRAM - VOTE 2702

The primary focus of the Transportation Policy and Planning (TP&P) program is to plan and promote a safe, efficient and reliable multi-modal transportation system that enhances Ontario’s economic competitiveness and quality of life. To achieve this, the program provides leadership in the setting of strategic policy directions for the ministry as part of its integrated long-term planning and works to enable a supportive policy and regulatory environment.

TP&P engages stakeholders and other partners in planning and supporting the development of an integrated transportation system that promotes efficiency, safety and economic competitiveness. It seeks opportunities to foster new partnerships with federal and municipal sectors and innovative delivery options that promote private sector investment in transportation based upon Made-in-Ontario Smart Growth principles. Together with SuperBuild, the program continues to identify opportunities for further partnerships to build new infrastructure and enhance the integration and efficiency of Ontario’s transportation network. At the same time, the program continues to manage the province’s public/private partnership with the 407ETR.

NOTE: Commencing in 2003-04, Estimates are presented on the accrual basis of accounting. Information for 2002-03 and earlier years is presented on the modified cash basis, and therefore comparison between 2003-04 and earlier year figures may not be meaningful. Differences between cash and accrual relate to adjustments such as timing of transfer payments and provisions for bad debts, that would increase or decrease the 2002-03 amounts had they been presented on the accrual basis.

Adjustments for this Ministry, if any, are indicated by superscripted references above and are explained on the page following the Ministry Summary - Reconciliation of 2002-03 Estimates from Cash to Accrual.
