  4. 4. Regional Transportation Plan 4 Vision: The GTHA will have a sustainable transportation system that is aligned with land use, and supports healthy and complete communities. The system will provide safe, convenient and reliable connections, and support a high quality of life, a prosperous and competitive economy, and a protected environment. 31 Priority Actions to Support the 5 Strategies • Metrolinx published the first regional transportation plan (RTP) for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) in 2008. • We are required to review the RTP at least every ten years, in alignment with Ontario’s Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe. • The legislative review of initial RTP led to the development of the 2041 RTP. Key outcomes include: o Quadrupling the number of people and doubling the number of jobs within walking distance of Frequent Rapid Transit o 27x more kilometres of the Frequent Rapid Transit o In addition to the capital costs, successful implementation will also require operating funding for transit services, fare integration and programs for walking and cycling Metrolinx Overview
