After Metrolinx halved fares on the UP Express, ridership doubled, according to The Star. Interestingly, commuters are still only a small fraction of the ridership. 83% of the passengers were taking the train to the airport.
In other news: The Sun reported this week that Metrolinx spent $48,000 on the design of UPX uniforms and an aborted attempt to get them into Fashion Week. Transportation Minister Stephen Del Duca was not pleased. He told The Sun
“The news regarding the Union Pearson Express uniforms is disappointing and I have expressed to the chair personally my concerns regarding recent decisions made by Metrolinx,”
