Residents Invited to Help Shape the Future of Transportation in their Community

TORONTO: November 3, 2016 – Metrolinx and its transit partners are undertaking the largest transit build in Canadian history in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, and residents are invited to help shape the future of transportation in their community.

There are over $32 billion worth of transportation improvement projects underway in support of the Regional Transportation Plan. Metrolinx is bringing more transit and more connections to more places within the GTHA. Every community transit project, big or small, plays a vital role in the regional transportation system.

Feedback from the community is key to the success of each project, and to ensuring that everyone in the region benefits from improvements to the transportation network. Over the coming month Metrolinx will be hosting community open houses to share information and updates on new track and electrification infrastructure.

Residents are welcome to join us in person at the public meetings, or to participate online at metrolinxengage.com
