Hamilton City Council ratifies memorandum of understanding for the Hamilton LRT project

Today, Hamilton City Council ratified a memorandum of understanding with Metrolinx and the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) to move forward with the 14-kilometre Hamilton Light Rail Transit (LRT) project.

In May 2021, a joint funding announcement was made by the provincial and federal governments committing $3.4B to the capital cost of the project, making the Hamilton LRT one of the largest infrastructure investments in the City’s history.

The LRT will connect McMaster University in the west end of Hamilton to Eastgate in the east, with new light rail vehicles running along tracks separated from regular traffic, offering frequent, safe and reliable service. It will also integrate with Hamilton Street Railway (HSR) bus service, and connect with local bike share, and GO bus and rail service.
