MISSISSAUGA--Ontario’s Gas Tax Program is easing traffic congestion and reducing air pollution in Mississauga by getting more people out of their cars and onto public transit.
Mississauga will receive $15,778,256 from the new Ontario government in support of improvements to Mississauga’s transit system.
Investing in public transit is part of the provincial government’s plan to help reduce congestion, strengthen the economy and create a fair and prosperous society.
“Making the dedicated Gas Tax Program permanent is good news for Mississauga as it will provide a sustainable and predictable source of provincial funding for public transit. Mississauga will be in a better position to make decisions on service improvements such as additional buses, expanded routes and improved security.”
— Dipika Damerla, MPP for Mississauga East-Cooksville
“Gas tax funding helps Mississauga deliver a better public transit and connect neighbourhoods across the city. Province’s record investments in public transit strengthen Ontario’s economy by helping people get to work, school, and shopping, while reducing gridlock and protecting the environment.”
— Bob Delaney, MPP Mississauga-Streetsville
