The City, Metrolinx and TTC have been working together to develop SmartTrack/GO RER integration options since January 2015, when City Council approved a joint work program.
SmartTrack will provide near-term solutions to increase transit options in Toronto by making better use of the existing GO corridors, while we plan additional, longer term investments to increase transit capacity across the city.
SmartTrack builds upon Metrolinx’s Regional Express Rail (RER) program, which includes increased service on five of the existing GO corridors, by proposing more stations and integrated fares on the Stouffville/Lakeshore East and Kitchener rail corridors.
In July 2016, City Council confirmed its support for the locations of six new SmartTrack station and two new GO stations and established a stage-gate process for decision-making.
