Public Transit Infrastructure
Investing in Public Transit Infrastructure
Through the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund, Budget 2016 focused on making immediate investments of $3.4 billion over three years, to upgrade and improve public transit systems across Canada.
To support the next phase of ambitious public transit projects, through Budget 2017 the Government will invest $20.1 billion over 11 years through bilateral agreements with provinces and territories. In addition, the new Canada Infrastructure Bank will play a role in defining and building public transit infrastructure in Canada. The Bank will invest at least $5 billion in public transit systems.
These investments will help to shorten commute times, cut air pollution, strengthen communities and grow Canada's economy.
