Policy and Planning - vote 2702

The Policy and Planning Program is responsible for identifying the long-term, strategic interests of the province with respect to Ontario's transportation systems, including transit. It develops policies, plans and programs to support an efficient and integrated multi-modal transportation system in Ontario.

This includes leading the development of investment strategies and policies that enhance transit and alleviate traffic congestion while supporting innovation in the transportation sector through policy development and planning for emerging trends such as connected and automated vehicles.

The program is also responsible for managing the province's relationship with Crown Agencies such as Ontario Northland Transportation Commission and Metrolinx, which includes GO Transit.

Additionally, the program works to advance Ontario's strategic transportation objectives with other ministries, the federal government, other provinces, municipalities, and Indigenous communities.
