There is a steadily increasing interest in applying user-fees to city and provincial roads, both as a means of funding improved public transit options and at the same time covering spiralling road maintenance costs. In Toronto, City Council has recently proposed tolls on two major municipal highways: the Gardiner Expressway and the Don Valley Parkway.
