The federal government says it will inject more than $200 million into Hamilton’s public transit system, including the A-line rapid transit corridor.
The funding is in addition to the $1.7 billion Ottawa has committed for light-rail transit in Hamilton in the Ontario city, Catherine McKenna, minister of Infrastructure and communities, said Monday.
The latest funding will be used for seven other projects, including the rapid transit corridor from the waterfront to the airport, she said. It will also go toward new buses, and constructing bike paths and sidewalks.
