Our transportation network is essential to Ontario's economic recovery and growth. Our economy relies on this system to remain competitive by moving people and goods throughout our province and across our borders safely and efficiently. Strategic investments in highways, roads, public transit, bridges and border crossings create jobs and the infrastructure necessary to attract new investment and strengthen our economy.

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 movement of people and goods. Promoting road safety for all road users, through education, legislation, regulation and enforcement, in order to remain among the safest jurisdictions in North America remains a top priority. In addition, the Ministry is improving Ontario's highway, bridge and border infrastructure through strategic investments and integrating the principle of sustainability into programs, policies and operations.
