Parallel public meetings
on the regional transportation plan

Update — Tuesday, October 21, 6:58 a.m.: The October 21 and 28 meetings coincide with the official Metrolinx meetings in Mississauga and Whitby instead of taking place at Metro Hall.

If you’re interested in the Metrolinx regional transportation plan — also known as “The Big Move” — but can’t attend one of Metrolinx own public meetings, you can still discuss and comment on the plan.

Join a series of open meetings to explore the proposed plan for the Greater Toronto Area and Hamilton. In parallel to the official public consultation meetings that Metrolinx is holding across the region, these smaller and less formal meetings will take place every Tuesday in October and November.

Anyone interested in regional transport can study and discuss the Metrolinx plan and its component parts during the sessions, which transit reporter Ed Drass is sponsoring. Some sessions will also deal with financing the plan, including how to pay for longer-term transportation infrastructure projects.

The next meeting will take place on Tuesday October 14 in room 303 of Metro Hall, 55 John Street at King Street West.

Since October 14 is election day, the meeting will start early at 5:45 p.m. (Future meetings will start at 7 p.m.) Anyone may attend and help devise a series of key questions about the regional transportation plan. The process will borrow consultation methods that Metronauts’ used during its “unconferences” on transportation issues in 2007 and 2008.

At future Metro Hall meetings, Metrolinx will respond to the top questions that participants develop on Tuesday. Key topics will also form the basis of future sessions.
