Podcast – Anne Marie Aikins answers your LRT questions

The Between the Lines podcast team reached out to you for questions about our Metrolinx transit projects and we were overwhelmed with responses about LRTs projects. This week’s episode of the Metrolinx podcast looks to answer some of those questions.

When will the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit (LRT) line open? What about the Hurontario LRT? Is the Ontario Line a subway or an LRT?

Those are just some of the questions our podcast team received after a callout on Instagram.

Want to learn more about the podcast? Check out the new show landing page.

This week on the Ask me Anything with Anne Marie Aikins, also known as #AMAwithAMA, Metrolinx’s Chief Spokesperson answers those questions and more.
