Will this project bring new jobs to the City of Toronto?


The complete transit project is expected to create approximately 200,000 new jobs in Ontario from $8.1 billion invested. This includes construction and manufacturing jobs, as well as economic spin-off effects.

Additionally, it has been shown that LRT expansion will provide greater benefit to local businesses than subway expansion, once it is built. Above-ground travel allows riders to see and access local businesses on major streets.
