Road User Fees: Key to Sustainable Urban Transportation

March 28, 2017 Marion Hall - Auditorium, University of Ottawa, 140 Louis Pasteur Ottawa

The Healthy Transportation Coalition and community partners are hosting an important event on March 28th titled Road User Fees: Key to Sustainable Urban Transportation.

There is a steadily increasing interest in applying user-fees to city and provincial roads, both as a means of funding improved public transit options and at the same time covering spiralling road maintenance costs. In Toronto, City Council has recently proposed tolls on two major municipal highways: the Gardiner Expressway and the Don Valley Parkway.
