LRT to (hopefully) restart next week, with a permanent fix on the horizon

The city hopes to get trains rolling next week, and they may finally have a permanent fix, but it's going to take time...

Good afternoon!

Wanted to give you a quick update on what we heard this morning from the city. It’s a mix of cautiously good news, and not-so-great news.

We’re trying a new thing for members to give short breaking updates to the biggest stories in the city, so you can keep as up to date as possible with what’s going on with the things that matter most.

So let’s get right to it!

LRT may reopen Monday, permanent fix possibly found

What happened: The city announced today it hoped to start running trains on Line 1 starting next week, if inspections progress. And the city may have a permanent fix, but it’s going to take at least a year to get that process started.
