Upcoming Metrolinx March 8, 2018 Board Meeting – Key Items

Posted in Updates



On Thursday, March 8, 2018, the Metrolinx Board of Directors will meet to discuss several items that may be of interest to you. A list of posted documents is below and the materials can be reviewed on the Metrolinx website.


Integrated Art


The Metrolinx Integrated Art Program is a corporate initiative that applies a guideline of 1% capital construction costs to artwork, embedded in transit infrastructure design. The Program applies region-wide on all Metrolinx projects over $10M. A presentation will be made to the Board to provide an update on the public launch of the program; an overview of the integrated artworks at the Eglinton Crosstown LRT stations; a summary of program benefits to our customers and the public; and upcoming project announcements and review of program growth.


PRESTO Privacy


Ontario’s Information and Privacy Commissioner has reviewed Metrolinx’s policies and practices as presented to the Board in 2017 and recommended only minor changes. For PRESTO’s privacy policy, these include adding: headings, to provide clarity; additional language to better align with the text of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act; and including a separate paragraph to identify that disclosures to law enforcement may include circumstances where disclosure is initiated by Metrolinx, such as where an offence has occurred on Metrolinx’s property. The revised PRESTO Policy reflecting these changes will be updated online as soon as possible.


Regional Transportation Plan and Next Steps


The Draft Final 2041 Regional Transportation Plan (2041 RTP), Making it Happen Paper (Paper) and Engagement Report will be presented to the Board.  The Draft Final 2041 RTP builds upon the strong support expressed towards the Draft 2041 Regional Transportation Plan’s vision, goals and strategies and reflects the extensive feedback received from provincial, municipal, NGO and public stakeholders, as summarized in the Engagement Report.  The Paper is intended to launch the dialogue about implementation, setting out key considerations, principles and opportunities for analysis and engagement that would realize the 2041 RTP. Through the Paper we will engage with our provincial, municipal, and non-governmental partners and input received will guide activities over the life of the plan.


GO Expansion RER New Stations – Business Case Analysis


Based in the Metrolinx Benefits Management process, a technical and staff report on New Stations Business Case Analysis will go to the Board.  These reports will document the 12 Preliminary Design Business Cases prepared for stations previously recommended for inclusion in the GO Expansion RER program in June 2016, as well as five Updated Initial Business Cases. The reports describe how the costs and benefits have evolved as planning, design, and operational models for the GO Expansion RER program have progressed.
On March 8, 2018 at 9:45am, you will be able watch the meeting, which will be streamed live at
