Ontario’s Gas Tax Program is helping people in the Peterborough Riding get out of their cars and onto public transit.
For the 11th consecutive year, the Ontario government is providing support to the County and City of Peterborough to improve its public transit system for families.
This year the City of Peterborough will receive $1,566,763.00 in funding and the County of Peterborough will receive $58,373.00.
Expanding public transit is part of the government’s economic plan for Ontario. The four part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people’s talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives, and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.
“Support from the Ontario government is paying off for Peterborough Riding allowing both the City and County to make significant transit improvements for local families and visitors to our community.”
- The Honourable Jeff Leal, MPP
“Provincial Gas Tax funds are integral to the provision of Community Care – Caremobile rural transportation services to the residents of Peterborough County. We congratulate the Provincial government in ensuring the continued flow of these funds to the County of Peterborough.”
- J. Murray Jones, Warden Peterborough County
"The Ontario Gas Tax Program represents an important contribution to the enhancement of the City's public transit system, and is a key element in helping us to maintain balanced and affordable transportation services."
- Daryl Bennett, Mayor City of Peterborough
