Welcome back – Metrolinx podcast returns as more customers to get on board transit

On this week’s #AMAwithAMA, Metrolinx chief spokesperson Anne Marie Aikins answers your questions about service changes, wayfinding at Union Station, and a new tool in GO Special Constables’ tool belt.

After a brief break, Between the Lines: A Metrolinx Podcast is back.

Each week, host Matt Llewellyn will continue to bring listeners thoughtful conversations about Metrolinx services (GO, UP Express, and PRESTO), and other transit-related topics.

But there are some changes to the show’s schedule.

Instead of two episodes a week, there will be one new episode every Thursday. Episodes will alternate between ‘Ask Me Anything’ segments one week, and then more in-depth conversations the next week.

The Between the Lines team has some interesting episodes planned for the coming weeks – so listen and subscribe wherever you get your podcasts or here on Metrolinx News.

This week, Between the Lines is back with the popular #AMAwithAMA segment.
