Transit is an urgent issue in the Greater Toronto Area, where rapid growth is causing overcrowding and there is clearly no more room for cars. The area features several municipal-scale transit agencies and a regional rail and bus system. Toronto itself is famous for challenging debates about major transit investments.
JWA has been retained multiple times to advise the office of Toronto’s Chief Planner on a range of transit development issues, including the creation of a transit planning practice within the city’s planning office. JWA has also run transit education workshops for the City, the regional transit agency Metrolinx, the adjacent city of Mississauga.
