An article about the Canadian government funding public transportation projects
Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau announced that the federal government plans to spend $14.9 billion over the next eight years on public transportation projects across Canada.

Public transportation ridership in Canada is on the decline because of Covid-19.

A good portion of individuals who use public transportation are working from home.

The funding includes a $5.9 billion short-term funding that will be disbursed on a project-by-project basis starting this year.

The rest of the funding is going towards creating a permanent transit fund of $3 billion per year starting in 2026.

Trudeau said the funding could be used for subway extensions, electrifying transit fleets with zero-emissions, walking, cycling pathways, and rural mobility needs.
