About The Clean Train Coalition
“The Clean Train Coalition is a grassroots organization with members from across the GTA. We believe that a healthy environment and vibrant neighbourhoods depend on smart investment in public transit. The CTC is calling for all new rail traffic along the Georgetown corridor to be electric. Unlike diesel, electric trains are clean, quiet, and fast for both a greener future and a more efficient transportation system. The provincial transit authority is proposing to expand track capacity in order to increase the number of diesel trains that travel along the rail corridor which runs from Union Station to Georgetown. Currently around 50 trains a day run along the corridor five days a week. Metrolinx is planning to build enough rails to increase that number to more than 450 diesel trains a day running seven days a week. This would make the Georgetown corridor the busiest diesel rail corridor on the planet.”

About The Clean Train Student Coalition
We are a group of post-graduate public relations students at Humber College who believe in clean, accessible transit for all citizens. We oppose the new diesel train line that will be running on the Georgetown corridor and will fight for a sustainable, electric transit system.
Metrolink is the company responsible for building the new diesel train Georgetown corridor. Their mission statement is:
“To champion, develop and implement an integrated transportation system for our region that enhances prosperity, sustainability and quality of life.”
