THE ROLE OF TRANSIT OPERATING AGENCIES

By 1973, over 100,000 people were commuting daily into metro Toronto. Rush-hour congestion was no longer a purely local problem that could be solved by one region acting alone. It was realized that the needs of the commuter cannot be met without the co-operation and co-ordination of all transit properties in an urban area. This paper describes the formation of the Transit Operating Authority for the Toronto area, the first attempt by the province of Ontario to establish an appropriate agency to carry out the functions necessary to achieve an integrated network of transit operations. /TRRL/
