As part of its plan to deliver long-term sustainable transportation and better transit, the Province of Ontario created the Greater Toronto Transportation Authority in 2006. Now known as Metrolinx, it plays a critical role in planning and delivering a seamless, integrated public transit network that allows people to travel easily among the regions in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA).
In September 2008, Metrolinx launched a regional transportation plan – The Big Move – that will transform the way people move.
