0 0

The Premier re-affirmed the Liberal's commitment to establish a $29 billion transit and infrastructure fund.

Kathleen Wynne stood in front of some GO trains in a transit yard in Toronto, stressing there needs to be faster and more reliable options for commuters.

The 10-year fund would be split in two, with $15 billion put specifically towards transit expansion. The other $14 billion would go to infrastructure projects across the province.

Wynne says a key part of the plan would be modernizing the GO rail system would be to start up all-day two-way service. She says it would help commuters who not only come into Toronto but those who travel to the 905 as well.
