LRT vehicles can carry more passengers and go faster than streetcars or buses.
Stations and Stops
In November 2015, Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario announced that Crosslinx Transit Solutions (CTS) – a consortium of SNC-Lavalin, EllisDon, AECON, and ACS Infrastructure Canada – has signed a contract to complete the Eglinton Crosstown LRT project. Crosslinx’s successful proposal will deliver the Crosstown by 2021. Using the Alternative Financing and Procurement (AFP) delivery model, Crosslinx’s winning proposal commits them to:
- design, construct and finance an integrated transit system consisting of 25 stations/stops, track work, signaling, communications and other required infrastructure; and
- maintain the LRT system for 30 years, including lifecycle repair and renewal of building and system components.
