The Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF) is a federal program designed to accelerate short term investments while supporting the rehabilitation of transit systems and funding studies to support longer term transit expansion plans.
PTIF funding is expected to impact transit ridership and improve the customer experience as follows:
- Improved mobility/accessibility
- Improved customer safety/security
- Improved service reliability
- Introduction of new technologies
Through PTIF Phase One, over $1.48 billion is being provided through federal infrastructure funding. The Government of Canada is cost-matching recipient contributions up to 50% of total eligible project costs. On behalf of the Government of Canada, the Ontario Ministry of Transportation will be responsible for the administration of the program in Ontario.
Please note that eligible PTIF recipients have received notification from the Ontario Ministry of Transportation.
