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!

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
