In Toronto Star Article, “Stuck in Toronto Traffic? It’s as Bad as You Think It Is — and Likely to Get Worse,” Fellow Jonathan English is quoted:
Another major reason for Toronto’s traffic woes is that people are trading in public transit for other modes of travel. ‘We’ve had people shift from GO (Transit) and the subway to the car,’ said Jonathan English, transportation director at the Toronto Region Board of Trade. Before the pandemic, English said, Toronto’s roads and public transit system were both running above capacity. Now, even as Torontonians have flocked back to other aspects of downtown life, they’ve been slow to jump back on transit, adding pressure to already overburdened roads.
English was also interviewed on iHeart Radio’s Newstalk 1010.
