Report: Drivers’ Choice
The Pembina Institute recently released a new report that offers key insights into managing gridlock and funding rapid transit in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).
The report, entitled Drivers’ Choice, presents the results of an Environics Research Group online poll, which surveyed drivers in the GTA whose commute behind the wheel was at least 30 minutes one way.
The objective of the survey was to better understand drivers’ preferences for a variety of commuting policy options—both incentives to reward sustainable habits and provide alternatives to single-occupant driving, as well as pricing policies to raise revenue for transit infrastructure and potentially discourage single-occupant driving.
The survey also explored options to make implementation fair and more acceptable. Click here to download the full report.
