Interesting thoughts from Paul J. Bedford, Metrolinx Board member

From the November/December 2008 Ontario Planning Journal, while this is over a year old, I could not agree more

“It is no suprise that highways constitute only 10 percent of the $50 billion budget, given that the road network we have today will by and large be the same network a quarter century from now. There are very few new road building opportunities left and past experience has shown that any new road capacity is immediately filled without resolving congestion. Lessons from around the world are clear that a major investment in a regional transit network is the only possible way to serve the mobility needs of a 10 million person region”

Well said.
