Metrolinx unveils a video showcasing the future Ontario Line.

Metrolinx offers the public a sneak peek through images of what it will be like to travel on the Ontario Line subway once it is completed in 2031.

In November, Infrastructure Ontario awarded a $6 billion contract for the design, construction, and financing of the civil works for the southern part of the Ontario Line, including stations and tunnels.


The short video clip shares five facts about the fleet of automated subway trains with a futuristic design. Highlighted features by Metrolinx include driverless mobility, passenger windows at the front of the trains, digital information displays for real-time updates and passenger information, onboard WiFi and charging points, dedicated spaces for bicycles, and double wheelchair access with folding seats.


Additionally, the video showcases a plan to equip the station platforms with doors capable of preventing self-harm and accidents, although this feature is not technically part of the train design.


Hitachi Rail commissioned GFG Rail, an Italian company and a brand of Giugiaro Architettura, for the concept and preliminary design of the trains.


The Ontario Line has generated much excitement as it is Toronto's first completely new subway line to be built since the opening of Line 4 Sheppard in 2002. It will run 15.6 kilometers with 15 stations, connecting Ontario Place to the Science Centre.
