CUTA calls for dedicated transit investment

Posted on August 21, 2009

As part of this year's pre-budget consultations, the Canadian Urban Transit Association (CUTA) submission to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance called for long-term dedicated transit investment as a strategy to meet current and future needs related to infrastructure expansion and renewal, as well as the creation of new transit systems.

Dedication of a portion of the federal Gas Tax Fund to public transit, a new Public Transit Fund that is permanent and predictable, continuation of transit eligibility for broad infrastructure programs such as the Building Canada Fund, along with implementation of the long-awaited tax exemption for employer-provided transit benefits, constitute the primary elements of the submission.

The content of this submission will be formally presented to the Finance Committee during its hearings in Ottawa later this year.
