City of Toronto to begin second phase of Feeling Congested? consultations
  
Many Torontonians are "feeling congested" with their daily commutes by car, bike, foot or public transit. Staff of Toronto's City Planning Division will be engaging commuters on subway platforms, in streetcars, on buses and on bike routes with the aim of encouraging them to go online to learn more about Toronto's transportation planning and to have their say in it.

Toronto's Chief Planner, Jennifer Keesmaat, will be available for interviews as City Planning kicks off this second phase of the Feeling Congested? public consultation on transportation at St. George Subway Station.

Date: Thursday, June 6
Time: 9 to 11:30 a.m.
Location: St. George Subway Station (at St. George Street entrance, on east side of St. George Street just north of Bloor Street West)

Media representatives can schedule a one-on-one interview with the Chief Planner by calling 416-392-3496 or by emailing bhawkin@toronto.ca.

The goal of the Feeling Congested? transportation consultation is to engage Torontonians on a range of issues related to transportation planning, priorities, and funding. This engagement will support and inform the current review of the City's Official Plan transportation policies, the development of a new long-term transportation plan, and the development of a funding and investment strategy.
