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.

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. We want to share our plans and get your feedback.

Metrolinx regional open houses begin November 7, 2016.

Please join us at our community Open houses to learn about key transit projects relevant to your community, provide feedback and talk to our 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 us shape the future of transportation in your community. Together, let’s get moving.

Discussion Paper for the Next Regional Transportation Plan

We are reviewing the GTHA’s first Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), The Big Move, and you are invited to participate. This review of the RTP provides an opportunity to take stock of and build on the foundation of The Big Move projects. It supports us working together as a region toward the completion of an updated RTP in 2017. Learn more and tell us what you think.

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.

Thank you for your feedback on the information shared during September’s Public Information Centres. The formal comment period has now closed, however boards from these meetings and other information on the Hamilton LRT project are available at www.metrolinx.com/HamiltonLRT. A second series of public meetings will be held in January 2017.
