The original plan for the Hamilton LRT project included approximately 11 kilometres of new light rail that will connect McMaster University through downtown Hamilton to Queenston Circle. The project also includes a high-order pedestrian connection to the Hamilton GO Centre Station, and a maintenance and storage facility. In April 2018, Hamilton City Council voted in favour of the LRT line, but decided to investigate the 14-kilometre option, versus the original 11-kilometre option, extending the line eastward from Queenston Circle to Eastgate Square. In April of 2018, three teams were announced as the successful proponents to participate in the RFP. The winner will be announced in early 2019, with construction to begin later that year.
