Is SmartTrack off the rails? CityTV

August 28, 2019 by School of Cities Staff

CityTV reports: Governments have pledged millions of dollars to SmartTrack – but as the province’s Ontario Line duplicates stations, advocates question whether it’s the best use of cash. 

School of Cities interim director Matti Siemiatycki, an associate professor of geography and planning, told CityTV News reporter Tina Yazdani, "I think there's stlll a lot of questions, and potential for duplication between those two lines."

“Any money that’s being allocated to SmartTrack is going to come off the books of other projects and because of that, we need to be sure that money is going to the best projects, the most-worthy projects, that are going to deliver the best benefit, and that there’s not duplication and overlap of servicing,” he added.
