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 $25.3 billion over the next decade, including $5 billion invested by the Canada Infrastructure Bank.
Through new bilateral agreements with provinces and territories, the Public Transit stream will provide provinces, territories and municipalities with funding to address the new construction, expansion, and improvement and rehabilitation of public transit infrastructure, and active transportation projects.
These investments will help to improve commutes, cut air pollution, strengthen communities and grow Canada's economy.
