This paper examines the public policy issue of transportation funding by analyzing the urban transit trends in Ontario regarding operating subsidies, ridership, service levels, cost and efficiency, revenue and fare, and productivity. The findings reveal that the elimination of provincial funding for urban transit in Ontario contradicts the integrated policy approach that is required for balanced urban transportation systems.
