There’s no getting around it. The Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) is choking on traffic. Decades of underinvestment have left the region with one of the longest average commute times in North America.

Today, Move the GTHA, a group of organizations, including Evergreen, that support investment in transportation infrastructure for the region, published an open letter to elected officials to make it happen.

The letter is a call to action following the release of the Investment Strategy by Metrolinx to fund the Big Move, a 25-year plan that will create new transit, road, cycling and pedestrian improvements across the region.

Signed by the heads of 36 organizations, the letter demonstrates a consensus on the need for a solution to our region’s gridlock. The signatories represent a diversity of perspectives and concerns, all committed to working together to see our region move and prosper.

This morning, Evergreen CEO Geoff Cape discussed the letter, and the issues that led to it, on CBC’s Metro Morning with Matt Galloway.

We encourage both elected officials and the general public to show your support for better transportation. Share this letter and visit Your32.com to pledge your support to stop gridlock.
