FAST is a not-for-profit advocacy group committed to providing Toronto with much-needed transit relief by ensuring that SmartTrack is built – and within a seven year timeframe.
FAST was established by a group of like-minded people who believe that SmartTrack is Toronto’s chance to erase decades of inaction on transit that have negatively impacted the city’s livability and functionality. Not only is Toronto’s current transit system over capacity and underperforming; it also fails to adequately serve all areas of the city.
For a city to work, it must be able to move its people.
SmartTrack will do just that – it will connect all four corners of the city with electrified, frequent, all-day, two-way express rail service along existing GO rail lines. It is a bold solution to our current challenge, and one that will move the most people in the shortest time, across the entire city. It will connect people to jobs across the Greater Toronto Area, and provide Torontonians with the transit relief we so desperately need.
FAST generates, mobilizes and solidifies momentum and support for SmartTrack with all audiences, ranging from decision makers to the general public, through education, awareness building and advocacy efforts. It is governed by an independent volunteer Board of Directors.
DID YOU KNOW…?
Approximately 90% of SmartTrack would run along corridors that are already in public hands, so it will not displace any existing roadways.MORE SMARTFACTS ›
