Ontario Government GTHA transportation agency Metrolinx will be holding a special Board Meeting this Tuesday February 23, in order to come up with ‘an updated business strategy’ for the UP Express. Presumably this is to come up with an affordable fare structure that will actually fill the train with passengers. Board Members may wish to consult WestonWeb for my Best Best Fare Structure or Adam’s mathematically mesmerizing best price for the UPX before making any crucial decisions.
The agenda indicates they’re spending a whole hour on the topic, half of which will be held in secret away from the public’s baleful glare. Interested citizens will be allowed in at 6:00.
No doubt the Premier will be watching the outcome closely having recently prompted the ever cautious Metrolinx Board to stop dithering and get bums on seats.
Date: Tuesday, February 23, 2016
Time: Public session begins at 6:00 p.m.
Location: Metrolinx Head Office, West Wing, Union Station, 97 Front Street West, at the corner of York Street, 4th Floor, Executive Boardroom
