Do you have a question for Metrolinx? Want to find out how to get involved in our campaign? Come to the meeting. RSVP here.
The 23-km long train from Union Station to Pearson Airport could be a truly affordable public transit line for all. So why is the Wynne Government and transit agency, Metrolinx, turning our new Union Station to Pearson Airport train into a train for the 1%? The 23 km long line has just two stops between the terminals, and it costs up to $27.50 to take the train one way. And Metrolinx and the Province are moving ahead with running unhealthy diesel trains through our neighbourhood, and not clean electric trains.
This is the first time in over a year that Metrolinx has held a public meeting on the Union Pearson issue. Metrolinx and the Province refused to hold any public meetings before deciding that it is going to cost $27.50 to ride the train.
We encourage you to invite the Minister of Transportation, Premier Wynne, and the MPPs that represent residents along the line to attend the meeting and hear community concerns. Your MPPs contacts are below.
