Ontario Moving Forward to Deliver Subways Faster

Ministry of Transportation

Here's what industry partners are saying about the proposed Building Transit Faster Act, legislation that will help deliver Ontario's four priority subway projects on-time and on-budget, ensuring that people and businesses get the transit they need sooner.

"We are committed to delivering transit as efficiently and effectively as possible so we can get more people moving sooner. It will be important to work closely with our city partners in order to minimize the disruption and inconvenience for residents along these lines."

Phil Verster, President and CEO, Metrolinx

"We look forward to working with our public and private sector partners to deliver these priority transit projects efficiently and responsibly. Streamlining processes that lead to frequent delays will help reduce risk, control costs, and accelerate the delivery of new transit projects."

Ehren Cory, President and CEO, Infrastructure Ontario

"Building transit more quickly is a key priority, not just for the business community but for residents as well. Clearing unnecessary roadblocks to ensure key transit projects are delivered on time and on budget is critical."

Jan De Silva, President and CEO, Toronto Region Board of Trade

"LiUNA supports the accelerated transit proposal that will help expedite the much-needed transit infrastructure on time, on schedule and on budget. Cost certainty is essential to create confidence in the market which will translate into needed construction jobs for our workers."

Anthony Primerano, Director of Government Relations, LiUNA

"I am encouraged by the Provincial Government's move to streamline processes to build critical infrastructure and ensure priority transit projects like Yonge North Subway Extension are built on time, eliminating unnecessary and costly delays."

Mayor Frank Scarpitti, City of Markham
