Ontario Rail Service Being Studied

The province of Ontario, Ontario Northland, and provincial transit agency Metrolinx are working together to restore rail passenger service to Timmins or Cochrane, Ontario.

Service to those points last operated in 2012. Officials on Tuesday released an initial business case for a proposed 13-stop passenger service.

A more detailed business-case study will be needed to flesh out such details as station locations, integration with Ontario Northland’s bus service, and scheduling matters.

The latter include the number of days service would be offered. The advanced business case is expected to be completed in 2022 with service getting underway by mid-decade.
