MAIN HEADING: POLICY AND PLANNING - VOTE 2702

Back to the Ministry of Transportation Summary page

The Policy and Planning Program oversees Ontario's long-term, strategic transportation interests. Its primary focus is to plan and promote an efficient and sustainable multimodal transportation system throughout the province.

In consultation with key federal and municipal partners, the program undertakes multimodal transportation policy development and long-range transportation planning to ensure that all of the elements of the system (air, rail, road, marine and transit) work together effectively.

The program provides funding for multimodal transportation systems and helps achieve provincial transportation-related climate change objectives. It is responsible for managing the province's relationship with Crown Agencies accountable to the Minister of Transportation such as Metrolinx, which includes GO Transit.

Additionally, the program works to advance Ontario's transportation priorities and interests by working with the federal government and other provinces on key areas of common interest.
