Infrastructure Ontario and Metrolinx have declared close for the Requests for Proposals (RFP) stage for the Ontario Line, Pape Tunnel and Underground Stations, and the Elevated Guideway and Stations contracts in Canada.

In the Pape Tunnel and Underground Stations project, proposals were received from Pape North Connect and Trillium Subway Partners within the deadline. Similarly, for the Elevated Guideway and Stations project, Rail Connect Partnership, Transit Expansion North, and Trillium Guideway Partners submitted their proposals on time. These submissions will be assessed by Infrastructure Ontario and Metrolinx. The highest-ranked team for each project will collaborate with Metrolinx in a Development Phase set to commence in 2024. Following the Development Phase, Metrolinx has the choice to enter into a contract with the selected team.
