North Bay Transit gets Financial Boost from Province

Ontario Investing $785,000 in North Bay Transit

 The Ontario government is supporting the City of North Bay with $785,000 from the 2023-24 Gas Tax program. The funding can be used to expand service hours, increase routes, purchase new vehicles, and improve accessibility to increase transit ridership. Funding for the gas tax program is set by the number of litres of gasoline sold in the province during the previous fiscal year, along with ridership and population levels.

 “This investment is fantastic news for transit riders in North Bay,” said MPP Vic Fedeli. “Under the leadership of Premier Ford, we will continue to invest in local transit to drive economic growth, make travel more convenient and connect people to the things that matter most to them.”

 The Ontario government is investing almost $380 million across the province to help 102 municipalities improve local transit through the Gas Tax program. This year’s Gas Tax program includes a one-time additional $3 million to ensure municipalities can continue to support and grow their transit systems.
