Transport Truch on highwayThe WOWC believes a fully integrated inter-community transportation system in Southwestern Ontario is essential to broader small urban-rural community mobility across the region.

WOWC has endorsed the SouthwestLynx Plan and supports the concept that both freight and passenger rail capacities and services can be enhanced within existing rail corridors and further complemented by an integrated inter-community bus system.

The SouthwestLynx Plan provides a transportation solution at a lower cost, in less time, with greater preservation of agricultural lands, enhanced rail freight improvements, less
detrimental community impacts, almost immediate mobility benefits, and the flexibility for incremental improvement to the system.

To enhance mobility and cultivate rail passenger ridership a fully integrated inter-community transportation system in Southwestern Ontario could be developed leveraging and complementing existing motor coach and other private sector transportation services in a similar manner as the Ontario Northland bus network.
