In 2021, the Federal government announced major investments in transit infrastructure designed to keep communities connected and move Canada closer to its climate goals. Ontario is also working hard towards these goals with major investments planned for the GO Transit network. But how do we bring all of these promises together to give communities the transit solutions they need?

Presented in partnership with Deloitte, we heard from Councillor Jaye Robinson, Michael Lindsay and Simon Dixon, about what has worked in other countries and the importance of operational planning to long-term transit solutions.
