Quick Wins

Highway overpass at nighttime

In 2007, the Province of Ontario provided $744 million in funding towards "Quick Win" initiatives approved by the Metrolinx Board. This demonstrates the ability of Metrolinx, the Province, municipalities and transit agencies in the region to work together towards initial high-impact priorities or Quick Wins.

These are tangible customer improvements from new buses to better passenger amenities that are already in service or going to be in service in the next few years.
