POLICY AND PLANNING - VOTE 2702

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

Together with key federal and municipal partners, the program undertakes multimodal transportation policy development and transportation planning. It also ensures that air, rail, road, marine and transit systems 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 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 areas of common interest.
