Metrolinx is a crown agency created by the Government of Ontario that champions and delivers mobility solutions which connect people, places and communities throughout the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area region. Metrolinx plays a critical role in planning and delivering a seamless, integrated transit network allowing people to use public transit to travel easily from Niagara to Newmarket to Oshawa. Metrolinx operates GO Transit, the regional public transit system, UP Express, the rail service from Union to Pearson Airport, and PRESTO, an electronic fare card that allows riders to transfer seamlessly across multiple transit systems.
More than 303,000 people travel on GO Transit vehicles on an average day; about 268,000 on train and 35,500 on buses.
