The federal government will provide $1.49 billion for transportation infrastructure across the province, with much of the money going to improve Toronto's troubled transit system.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne announced the joint federal-provincial program during a news conference at a municipal transit garage in Barrie.

Much of the potential funding federal had already been announced in Toronto in May, but the city has now formally applied for $474 million from the new Public Transit Infrastructure Fund.

The federal money will fund no more than half the total cost of each project. 

The money will be spent on everything from subway track and station improvements to new buses, bike lanes and other big-ticket items along with fixes to broken escalators and improved station signage.

"This is big news for Toronto," federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau said at a news conference held later Tuesday morning at St. Clair West subway station that focused on the Toronto projects.

Mayor John Tory said the money will make Toronto's transit system "faster, stronger, safer and more accessible.

"Good things happen when there is collaboration between all levels of government in this country," he said. "This is just the beginning of our partnership with the federal and provincial levels of government in transit."

TTC chairman Josh Colle said the money will make the system "more reliable for our patient customers."

The projects are spread across the province, but you can read on for a complete list of what Toronto is getting. Some of these projects are already underway.
