The Connect 6ix consortium has achieved financial close on the CAD9 billion (US$6.72 billion) Ontario Line Rolling Stock, Systems, Operations and Maintenance (RSSOM) contract.

The Ontario Line with 15 stations, will run from Toronto’s southwestern downtown at Ontario Place to the Ontario Science Centre in the northeast. Ridership is estimated at up to 388,000 trips and expected to carry up to 388,000 passengers a day and provide more than 40 connections to bus, streetcar, light-rail transit and regional rail services. 

The RSSOM scope of work includes 30 years contract to:

  • Design, supply, operate, and maintain the fleet of autonomous, electrically powered trains;
  • Design, build, operate, and maintain all track and communications (e.g. network, Wi-Fi, CCTV, passenger information), and train control systems for the Ontario Line; and
  • Design, build, operate, and maintain the maintenance and storage facility (where vehicles are stored) and the operations control centre (where staff control train operations).

The RSSOM contract's construction is expected to start in 2023 and end in 2031.
