Published December 8, 2022 at 12:22 pm
Milton has received a grant to help cover some of the losses in transit revenue during the pandemic.
As part of an Ontario government plan to assist municipalities across the province, Milton will receive $297,842.
The funds are meant to address pandemic related costs for most of 2022.
Milton will be able to apply the cash to cover revenue losses, operating expenses, integrating fare projects and other transit projects.
The funds are part of ongoing pandemic relief supplied by senior levels of government to Ontario towns and cities totalling $505 million.
“This funding, on top of what has already been provided, will help ensure reliable transportation options are available for everyone, whether you’re going to work, school or the grocery store,” Caroline Mulroney, Ontario’s Minister of Transportation when making the announcement.
More than 100 municipalities across the province will receive various amounts of transit relief funding as part of the program.
