2017 Transit Report Card: ‘C’ for Region

The Greater Toronto & Hamilton Region, including Brampton Transit received an overall C ranking from the recently published 2017 Transit Report Card of Major Canadian Regions. According to the report, the region dropped from a B ranking last year. The six regions studied include:

Greater Montreal: A+++
Metro Vancouver: A+
Greater Calgary: A+
Greater Edmonton: B
Greater Toronto/Hamilton: C
National Capital Region: C

The report was compiled by City Councillor Nathan Pachal from the City of Langley, BC. Councillor Pachal is a transit advocate who co-authored “Leap Ahead: A transit plan for Metro Vancouver” that was a precursor to a regional transportation plan for Metro Vancouver.

In this year’s Transit Report Card, Councillor Pachal aggregates data from 10 transit systems in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area to calculate the region’s C ranking, including:

Brampton Transit
Burlington Transit
Durham Region Transit
GO Transit
Hamilton Street Railway
Milton Transit
