Metrolinx is accepting Requests for Information (RFI) for Transportation Networking Company and Taxi Promotional Partnership - Potential Partner Benefits and Evaluation Framework
Metrolinx is an agency of the Government of Ontario, overseeing GO Transit, PRESTO, and UP Express. Metrolinx’ s GO Transit service serves a population of more than 7 million people throughout the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area (GTHA). We are embarking on a massive transformation of the GO Rail network - the backbone of regional rapid transit in the GTHA – to give customers a faster, more convenient way to connect with the things that matter. Metrolinx provides communities with the connection to the people, places and events that matter to them! Union Station is one of many hubs centered in downtown Toronto with direct access to the Air Canada Centre, Rogers Centre, Ripley’s Aquarium, and the CN Tower. Exhibition Station provides direct access to Budweiser Stage, BMO Field, the CNE, Honda Indy and many more cultural events and festivals. For many fans and attraction seekers, their ride on the GO Train becomes an enjoyable extension of their experience.
Metrolinx is seeking promotional partnership(s) with a Transportation Networking Company (“TNC”) and/or taxi service for GO Transit.  The objective of the promotional partnership is to increase ridership and decrease utilization of personal vehicle trips. We are committed to working together to create a partnership that will meet shared objectives, increase market share for our partners and provide a positive customer experience.
