Ministry of Transportation - THE ESTIMATES, 2008-09 - Summary

The transportation sector is an important cornerstone of Ontario's economic prosperity and 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 accessibility of our transportation system. Ontario's export-driven economy relies upon this system to move goods and people efficiently and competitively, particularly within the current climate of just-in-time delivery.

The Ministry of Transportation is committed to increasing transit ridership by working with our partners to make transit a convenient and accessible option for commuters. The Ministry is also working to advance an integrated multimodal transportation network to support the efficient and sustainable movement of people and goods. Promoting road safety for all road users, through education, legislation and regulation, in order to remain among the safest jurisdictions in North America also remains a top priority. In addition, the Ministry is improving Ontario's highway, bridge, and border infrastructure through strategic investments to ensure their continued safety, efficiency, and ability to contribute to Ontario's economic success.
