Overview

In 2008, The Big Move kicked off an unprecedented expansion in rapid transit infrastructure. The Draft Plan takes everything learned from working on those projects and looks to the future — with over $30 billion in investments for rapid transit committed, and ambitious projects already underway. Our goal is to create a seamless, connected region, bringing the maximum benefits to people, businesses and public institutions such as schools and hospitals. The work has begun — it’s up to all of us to maintain the momentum!

There’s a lot of untapped potential there. The Draft Plan makes better use of the GO rail network, transforming GO trains into the backbone of a new, fully-integrated and much-expanded transportation system.Read more
