The Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit Project introduces a new form of rapid transit technology along the Eglinton corridor and within the City of Toronto. The mega-project presents significant technical, financial and commercial challenges as it will be constructed and operated in a densely populated urban centre.
Following an extensive qualifications process, two internationally acclaimed proponent teams are shortlisted. The Stewart Group is retained as Chief Bid Strategist to successfully deliver the single largest P3 transit contract in Canadian history to one of the proponent teams.

A winning bid! Following an 18-month procurement process, Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario identify Crosslinx Transit Solutions as the preferred proponent to deliver the Design-Build-Finance-Maintain (DBFM) contract, valued at $9.1 billion.
