So, Hamilton spends 90% of the federal gas tax money on roads. How does Toronto spend this money?

From 2005-2013, the City has received over $1 billion in GTF that has been directed to the Toronto Transit Commission to leverage over $2.6 billion of investments in the City's transit system.

GTF funding has been used for the:

purchase of replacement buses, Toronto Rocket subway cars, Wheel-Trans buses and Light Rail Transit vehicles; the Easier Access Program modification of the Wilson Carhouse, construction of the Leslie Barns Streetcar Maintenance and Storage Facility, and other various transit infrastructure assets.

Compare and contrast!
