Funding for Ontario’s gas tax program is determined by the number of litres of gasoline sold in the province.

Use of the funding is at the discretion of individual municipalities and can include upgrading infrastructure, increasing accessibility, purchasing transit vehicles, expanding routes and extending hours of service.
