Metrolinx Podcast – Between the Lines

What is Between the Lines all about?

Every week on Metrolinx Podcast: Between the Lines we tackle transit-related topics that are important to you. We continually talk with some of the brightest minds and leading global experts in the transit field. Tune in for conversations on everything from operating trains and buses in Toronto and the GTA, chats with CEO Phil Verster as well as a mailbag segment with our chief spokesperson Anne Marie Aikins. New episodes are posted right here on Metrolinx News.
