Toronto Looking to Cut Congestion with 500 ‘Smart’ Traffic Signals

The City of Toronto is looking to improve the lives of drivers by installing hundreds of “smart” traffic signals that will help cut down on congestion.

On Thursday, Mayor John Tory launched MoveTO, a new action plan to “help manage congestion and build a more resilient, modern, and safe transportation system.”

According to the City, the plan proposes five key measures that will help make the city’s transportation system more resilient, in response to the effects of COVID-19 on Toronto’s overall transportation network. And while the pandemic has cut traffic down, the City says it needs to address these changes now.
