Academics Praise Toronto Mayor John Tory’s Tolling Proposal

Toronto Star features an op-ed column penned by three Canadian academics who call Toronto Mayor John Tory’s expressway tolling proposal “bold” and “smart.” They explain why “the proposed road toll for Toronto’s two biggest thoroughfares is good news for Torontonians. If designed well, road tolls can help alleviate traffic while also providing governments with a new source of revenues that can be used to improve the overall transportation system. They also reduce the need for new expansions to cope with peak-demand.”
