The Greater Golden Horseshoe (GGH) is a large urban region centred around Toronto, encompassing Waterloo, Brant and Haldimand in the west, Niagara to the south, Simcoe in the north, and Peterborough and Northumberland in the east. It is home to 10 million people, or over 60% of Ontario’s population. Two-thirds of Ontario’s gross domestic product (GDP) is generated here.
The intent of the discussion paper is to inform the development of a long-term transportation plan for the GGH region. The paper proposes a 30-year vision for mobility in the region, designed to meet transportation challenges of the future, as well as identify near-term actions that can be taken now.
Pillars of the province’s proposed 2051 vision include:
- Getting People Moving on a Connected Transit System
- Enhancing Capacity and Performance on Congested Roads
– Efficiently Moving Goods Across the Region
