Advisory panel

To support Metrolinx’s business cases, Metrolinx established the Project Evaluation Advisory Panel in 2019. The panel serves as an ongoing forum to evaluate all business cases developed by Metrolinx, as well as to make sure that Metrolinx's Business Case Guidance remains current and supports evidence-based decisions for transit projects. The panel is made up of external experts in academia, economics, and public policy.
