Recommended Posts

TORONTO — Hitachi Rail and its consortium partners will build, maintain, and operate driverless subway trains for Toronto’s 15.6-kilometer (9.7-mile) Ontario Line project under a C$9 billion agreement, Hitachi announced this week.


The agreement with Infrastructure Ontario and regional transportation agency Metrolinx covers rolling stock, and well as related systems, and operations and maintenance for 30 years. The 15-station line, including eight underground stops, will see trains operate as frequently as 90-second intervals and will be capable of moving up to 30,000 people per hour. It will connect to three other subway lines as well as GO Transit commuter trains.
