Under the department's proposed business plan, $668 million in MSI funding will be provided for 2018:
- $638 million in MSI capital funding (which includes $344 million from the former Basic Municipal Transportation Grant (BMTG) program); and
- $30 million in MSI operating funding.
In addition, $800 million of MSI funding was reprofiled in March 2018 from future years. The re-profiling of $400 million from each of 2018-19 and 2019-20 as grants to 2017-18 provides greater flexibility in meeting capital plans.
