The Ontario government is doubling the amount of money for transit funding by boosting gas tax rebates over the next five years.

Currently, the City of Ottawa receives just over $34 million transit funding through the gas rebate. That funding will climb to $66 million in 2021.

"We are going to be sharing more of that money with our cities like Ottawa so they can provide quality public transit," said Ottawa MPP and Ontario Attorney General Yasir Naqvi.
