Infrastructure Ontario and Metrolinx have shortlisted three teams to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) project.

    Why wouldn’t they extend this LRT to the airport? There is no public transit to airport for people in suburbia except by going all the way downtown first. There should be airport access from Go Train stations to the east and west. If you have to go downtown Toronto anyways then you might as well fly from Billy Bishop…….and they wonder why the UP Express is not being used???? We also need Go Buses along the 401 from on HOV lanes express from Mohawk track (Guelph Line and 401) right to airport and then to Yorkdale and Yonge subway lines. This would take a ton of cars off the road. Those driving in from Cambridge / Guelph Milton who don’t need to go downtown but rather stay uptown TO.
