Metrolinx Affirms that Relief Subway Line Needed Before Yonge St North Extension

Metrolinx has acknowledged that the Relief Subway Line must be built before expanding north into York Region. In a report released on Thursday, the regional transit agency stated: “Transit network forecasts show that Relief Line South needs to be in operation before the Yonge North Subway Extension. Relief Line North provides further crowding relief for Line 1.”

As Midtown residents who often wait three or four trains just to get on during rush hour can attest, addressing the overcrowding on our existing subway must be done before adding more pressure on the system. Transit must be planned based on facts, rather than politics.
