Ministry of Transportation - THE ESTIMATES, 2007-08 - Summary

The transportation sector is a cornerstone of economic prosperity and a high quality of life. Much of what we value -- our jobs, our health, our education and our leisure time -- is affected by the quality and availability of transportation. Ontario's export-driven economy relies upon this same system to move goods and people efficiently and competitively, particularly in the current climate of just-in-time delivery.

The Ministry of Transportation is committed to building and maintaining a safe, efficient and sustainable transportation network in Ontario. The ministry is working to make public transit a more viable alternative by promoting increased convenience, flexibility and accessibility. In addition, Ontario's transportation infrastructure needs to be maintained regularly, repaired when necessary and strategically expanded in order to protect public investments. This must be carried out in an environmentally responsible manner.

The ministry is also pursuing new and innovative technologies to ensure that our programs and services meet peoples' needs and that transportation continues to support job creation, tourism, business investment, trade and a high quality of life for future generations of Ontarians.
