Operating agreement reached for Toronto’s new light rail transit lines

Metrolinx and the Toronto Transit Commission have reached an agreement on the operations and maintenance of Toronto’s four new provincially-funded light rail transit (LRT) lines.

Under this arrangement, the TTC will operate the four Toronto LRT lines under contract with Metrolinx, while Metrolinx’s private sector partner maintains the assets.

“The McGuinty Government is investing a record $8.4 billion dollars to build the high-quality LRT projects Torontonians expect and deserve,” said Bob Chiarelli, Minister of Transportation. “We are determined to get the best value for taxpayer dollars.”

“Metrolinx and the TTC agree on the urgent need to expand transit,” said Metrolinx CEO Bruce McCuaig. “This agreement was the result of ongoing, open discussion and we are pleased that we have developed a plan that will achieve maximum value for the Province’s investment.”

“Metrolinx and the Toronto Transit Commission are working together to provide effective and integrated transit services in Toronto so that customers can get where they need to go faster, more reliably, and more comfortably,” said TTC Chair Karen Stintz.

“We are very pleased that under this agreement, operations will be delivered by the TTC. For decades Toronto has been the global model for integrated public transit, and this agreement ensures that the system will be seamless in terms of operations, safety and security,” said TTC CEO Andy Byford. ”
