Transit and Traffic Around Markham

The Reality

Most key roads in Markham are congested at rush hour.

The Challenge

We need accessible, affordable, sustainable and efficient transportation options. We need more than road widening to solve our congestion problems.

The Opportunity

Test new technologies and innovative services to keep Markham moving:

  • Implement smart technologies to coordinate traffic lights in real time based on current traffic flows
  • Explore transit on-demand options (like Uber) to connect low-density neighbourhoods to major transit hubs
  • Remove the “2 Fare Wall” between YRT/Viva and the TTC
