TORONTO, CANADA – The Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) applauds the Government of Ontario’s 2019-2020 Budget for taking a regional approach to transit. We welcome the news that transit projects that serve multiple jurisdictions are gaining momentum, supporting GTA residents, more than 300,000 workers in the Airport Employment Zone (AEZ) and businesses across Ontario. Prioritizing the Eglinton Crosstown West will address mounting road congestion, enable local businesses to attract and retain talent, and speed the movement of goods.
We also support the government’s approach to work more closely with the private sector to deliver transit. We have been, and continue to take, an active leadership role in developing strong regional transit, and look forward to working with the province to better connect the AEZ. When we think and act as one region, we all win together.
