Parallel public meetings
on the regional transportation plan continue

Transit report Ed Drass continues to host a series of informal weekly meetings at Metro Hall to discuss the Metrolinx draft regional transportation plan for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, or “The Big Move”.

Metrolinx plans to approve the draft plan at the end of November, so these meetings offer you an opportunity to discuss the plan and ask questions about it before Metrolinx finalizes it.

All meetings take place in room 303 of Metro Hall, 55 John Street at King Street West.

Ed has suggested these themes for discussion over the next month:

Tuesday, November 4: Network, corridors and technologies
Start time: 6 p.m. (early due to interest in United States election results)

Tuesday, November 11: Fare integration, and effect on capacity
Start time: to be announced

Tuesday, November 18: Goods movement, railways and highways
Start time: to be announced

Tuesday, November 25: Budget and timeline for The Big Move
Start time: to be announced

Ed will ask Metrolinx in advance to respond to a series of questions — either by writing responses or by sending representatives to join the discussions.

Metrolinx has already organized a series of seven community meetings throughout the GTA and Hamilton to allow residents to comment on the plan. The meetings took place from October 20 until 30. You can also comment on the plan on-line before Friday, November 14 here.

The first of these parallel meetings on the plan took place at Metro Hall on October 14. The two following meetings on October 21 and 28 coincided with, and took place in the same venue as, Metrolinx consultation meetings in Mississauga and Whitby.
