Clean Train Coalition wants UPX to be part of SmartTrack

The Clean Train Coalition, still chugging along, released an open letter this week calling on the province and the city to get their acts together and make the UP Express into local transit.

The letter says, rather optimistically, that “SmartTrack is in the final planning stages”, and that “Metrolinx [should] consider integrating UP Express into SmartTrack.”

This is easier said than done; the UPX runs different trains with different technology than the rest of the city (or the province), and SmartTrack is meant to run from one end of the city to the other, not only in our neck of the woods.
