Ontarians rely on public transit to get to work, see family and friends, and live their lives. Yet, after 15 years of broken Liberal promises, they are still waking up at the crack of dawn just to beat highway traffic. Commute times have gotten worse under Kathleen Wynne and the Ontario Liberals.
Commuters in the Greater Toronto Area now spend an average of one hour and 20 minutes per round trip getting to and from work. That’s 24 minutes longer than in Los Angeles, 12 minutes longer than New York, and 32 minutes longer than in Barcelona. This is time spent away from family and the people you love. This can take its toll on our health and well-being.
This is unacceptable. Ontario shouldn’t be known for the longest or most unreliable commutes. It’s time to take decisive action to improve Ontario’s public transit so that you can get home to your family faster.
Endless political delays and red tape prevent the necessary transit investments from being made.
Patrick Brown and the Ontario PCs will make major investments in public transit to help commuters get home.
