Sufficiency of Transportation Infrastructure in the GGH

CANCEA conducted research for TRREB to assess transportation infrastructure sufficiency in the Greater Golden Horseshoe (GGH). Two questions were addressed: 

  1. Can ongoing and approved transit projects handle population growth and housing development? 
  2. How does the shift to hybrid work-from-home impact transportation needs?

The GGH expects a significant population increase, and transit commuters could double in the next 30 years, straining the existing network. Timely execution of key infrastructure projects and maintaining 20% work-from-home is crucial for sustaining transportation capacity.

If these conditions are met, the GGH’s transportation network should accommodate growth; otherwise, it may face challenges. Different regions within the GGH will experience varying transportation demand based on demographics and work patterns. Younger individuals and low-income families, who rely more on transit and lack work-from-home options, face higher transportation costs.

To ensure sufficient transportation capacity, timely infrastructure execution and addressing changing work patterns are essential.
