Ontario Line LIVE – Learn more about the project in your community, a year-end review and what’s next – November 25, 2021

On November 25, 2021, Metrolinx hosted a virtual presentation and live Q&A about the work completed this past year to bring you better, faster and easier transit with the Ontario Line with over 550 live attendees. The presentation featured a project-wide year-end review and lookahead for the upcoming year for all stations across the Ontario Line.

During the virtual open house, we answered top-voted questions submitted by registrants, as well as live questions from participants using a call-in option. Participants asked a variety of questions related to construction impacts, plans to minimize and manage impacts, the maintenance and storage facility, findings uncovered during archaeological work at the First Parliament Site, and more. We’ll be posting responses to questions on the event page as soon as possible.

For those who weren’t able to join us, you’ll find the video recording below. We’re looking forward to holding many more meetings in the future.

What specific measures are planned to support and encourage safe CYCLING to/from the 15 Ontario Line stations? How much and what types of bike parking will you provide? What proportion of your ridership are expected to be cyclists? Active transportation users? Multi-modal users? How will your planned infrastructure support all of these users?

Why is the current Go Train track number increasing? If there is an incident on the EB or WB Ontario Line tracks are the trains stuck with no additional track to alleviate congestion or can the trains switch tracks? If this service is meant to benefit our neighbourhood, it should be catering to it, not adding additional Go capacity.
