Rapid transit


The tracks have been laid - soon, you'll be able to travel from one end of our region to the other, quickly and conveniently.

Once the system is fully operational, ION will connect rapid transit with:

ION and GRT will operate with one fare for all services, and free transfers between both systems.

The addition of light-rail service will bring many benefits to our community, including:

  • less traffic congestion and sprawl,
  • reduced need for costly road expansion projects, and
  • new employment opportunities

Check out ION online for construction updates, project news and information, route maps, reports, videos and visuals, past public meeting materials and frequently asked questions.
