Ministry of Transportation

POLICY AND PLANNING - VOTE 2702

The primary focus of the Policy and Planning Program is to plan and promote a safe, efficient and sustainable multi-modal transportation system. This includes a transit network that supports strong communities, an enhanced quality of life and a healthy economy. To achieve this, the program provides leadership in setting strategic policy direction for the ministry as part of its integrated long-term planning, and works to enable a supportive policy and regulatory environment.

The program also focuses on reducing traffic congestion through the promotion of public transit, and the movement of people and goods along our highways and our border crossings. The program has established the Greater Toronto Transportation Authority (GTTA) to create a seamless and more convenient transportation network. It is also developing a goods movement strategy for the province, integrated with the ministry's border initiatives. The program manages the ministry's inter-provincial and bilateral negotiations with the federal government on a range of transportation related issues, including the implementation of federal investment programs.
