Transport policy in Metropolitan Toronto has swung from highway to public transport orientation in recent years. Cancellation of the half-completed Spadina expressway in 1971 has been followed by increased support for public transport operators, and more controversially by a search for new intermediate rapid transit technology. Tom Parkinson, who represents the Toronto Transit Commission on the Metropolitan Toronto Transportation Plan Review, discusses these changes and their effect on existing and planned commuter rail, rapid transit and tramway services.
