More Connections. Bringing people closer together in time. 

More Connections

High Frequency Rail (HFR) would better connect Canada’s most populous region, making it easier to travel to major cities and better connecting you to workplaces, businesses, cultural institutions, universities and colleges. HFR would also connect to major transportation infrastructure, including airports and public transit systems, providing those who no longer want to drive with a new option for travelling to larger cities. 

The new trains and faster journey times would bring people closer together—allowing increased same-day return journeys.

Where will HFR stop?

With stations proposed between Toronto, Ottawa, Montréal and Québec City—some new, some relocated, some rehabilitated and some existing—HFR would create more connections for people and enhance passenger experience.  

To identify the optimal location and number of stations along the proposed HFR route, the HFR Project Team will consider how best to achieve shortest journey times while still meeting other key objectives of HFR (e.g., improved connections and connectivity to other modes of transit).

Providing intercity rail service to more communities including Peterborough and Trois-Rivières would improve access to major cities between Toronto and Québec City, allowing residents to participate more broadly in the region.  

Work and engagement will be ongoing to help guide HFR’s exact path and station stops. Decisions remain and input will be essential to help guide the final route and design for HFR. Stay informed by signing up for Project updates.
