Metrolinx is a Government of Ontario agency under the Metrolinx Act of 2006. It was created to implement an improved transportation system for Hamilton and the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). It’s function is to plan and develop a seamless, integrated network of sustainable long-term transit systems that allow people to easily travel between Oshawa, Newmarket and Hamilton.
The world-class system runs along the Greenbelt, which is an environmentally protected area covering over 1.8 million acres of land. Metrolinx is dedicated to the growth and prosperity of the region, and this transportation system is the key to achieving that goal. The company operates in Ontario, in the Golden Horseshoe region of the province and doesn’t plan to expand out of that area. It already has a cooperative agreement with the GO Transit system, which connects the GTA to other cities such as Kitchener and Guelph.
MetroLinx is a transit service that is owned and operated by the Government of Ontario, Canada. Since 2006, it has been providing the public with quick and effective transportation services. The company’s vision entails “Getting you there better, faster, easier”.
GO Transit, UP Express, and PRESTO are services that come under MetroLinx. Initially, MetroLinx worked with the federal, provincial, municipal, and private sector to come up with an integrated transportation system. The goal was to ensure a more prosperous economy, a safer environment, and higher quality of life.
As the company’s main aim is to make the lives of customers easy, they have established an efficient customer support system, too. The three services that are integrated together offer their own customer services. All the channels are mentioned here.

MetroLinx cares for its customers. If you want to give feedback or want to learn more about their service, you can contact them through the above-mentioned ways.
If I could give them a minus score I would. Metrolinx does not care at all about people or the communities they serve. They are the most arrogant company I have ever encountered. The government gives them too much power and they don’t need to care about people and customers and communities.
