How Metrolinx Engage works

Welcome to Metrolinx Engage, where you can learn more about Metrolinx projects and find out how you can give feedback. Having your say is what this site is all about. Before exploring the individual engagement opportunities on this site, here’s a brief introduction to Metrolinx.
 
Metrolinx plans, builds and delivers. Our goal is to transform the way the region moves by championing long-term transportation and transit solutions that enhance prosperity, sustainability, and quality of life. Guided by an award-winning Regional Transportation Plan, Metrolinx is implementing the biggest transit expansion in Canadian history with more than 200 projects currently underway across the region. Whether you drive or ride, a better transportation and transit system benefits us all because it means less time getting there and more time being there.

Hamilton LRT Public Information Meetings

Together with the City of Hamilton, Metrolinx is building a 13-km light rail transit (LRT) line that will offer rapid, reliable, safe and convenient transit service from McMaster University through downtown Hamilton to Queenston Circle. A signature project under the Moving Ontario Forward plan, Hamilton LRT is funded with a $1 billion commitment from the Province of Ontario, announced by the Premier on May 26, 2015.

Hamilton LRT will feature new, modern light rail vehicles and service 17 stops. It will provide integrated transit for residents and businesses across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area by connecting directly to the new West Harbour GO Station via the A-line spur that will go up James Street North. The A-line will extend to the Hamilton waterfront, budget permitting, and connect to the existing Hamilton Centre GO Station through a high-order pedestrian connection.

The project team will discuss the main features of the transit system, some of the key benefits and next steps for the project at open house Public Information Meetings.
