Shape the Future of Transportation in Your Community!


The Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) is now home to nearly 7 million people and heading towards 10 million by 2041. Metrolinx is bringing more transit and more connections to more places within the GTHA. As we grow, our transit system needs to grow too. Every community transit project big or small plays a vital role in shaping the regional transportation plan.

Metrolinx regional open houses begin November 7, 2016.

Please join Metrolinx at a community Open house to learn about key transit projects relevant to your community, provide feedback and talk to their staff. Open houses start at 6:30 pm with presentations beginning at 7 pm. Topics include:

  • Review of proposed mitigation strategies
    • Feedback on Environmental Assessment (EA)/Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) to build new track and electrification infrastructure in the following areas:
    • GO Rail Network Electrification TPAP (Hydro One as co-proponents)
    • Barrie Rail Corridor Expansion TPAP
    • Lakeshore East – Don River to Scarborough Expansion TPAP
    • Review of the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) providing the opportunity to formally incorporate new insights into the plan, while ensuring we maintain momentum on the projects underway

Help Metrolinx shape the future of transportation in your community.
Together, let’s get moving.
