Premier Wynne says the province will apply lessons learned from the temporary Pan Am HOV lanes to eventually create toll lanes. She says the Pan Am lanes will not become permanent but they will likely return in the form of toll lanes. The money from the new toll lanes would be an important source of revenue to help fund the Liberals $130-billion, ten year transit and infrastructure plan. Mayor John Tory says the city will have to decide whether to toll lanes on the municipally governed Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway, but the temporary HOV lanes will be removed after the Games end in August.
Should the Pan Am HOV lanes be turned into HOT lanes? Would you pay a toll to use the lane? What would you like to see the funds collected go to?
