Last week OTA met with MTO officials on the development of their Northern Ontario Multimodal Transportation Strategy (NOMTS).
The NOMTS will identify short, medium and long-term solutions for improving the transportation system for northern Ontario for all modes, including air, rail, road and marine over the next 25 years. In the development of this plan, MTO will look at possible improvements that could include physical infrastructure, service levels, operational considerations, program funding, governance, partnerships and more. While MTO is still in the planning phase, OTA has provided some initial input and will be seeking direct input from carrier members as this project continues. The first major topic to be discussed is the provision of rest stops in North Ontario. If members have input, please contact [email protected]
