Remaining Activities

Trial Running began July 29, 2019. The objective of this important next step is to complete 12 consecutive days of regularly scheduled service and to confirm system readiness for passenger service by exercising the Confederation Line system at full functionality.

 

On occasions during Trial Running, the public may not see trains running on the Confederation Line. This is normal as there are many different systems being tested at different times throughout this period.

The Independent Certifier will confirm whether the requirements of Trial Running have been achieved. Then, the Independent Safety Auditor approves compliance with all safety requirements and RTG will be in a position to submit a Revenue Service Availability (RSA) notice. This notice will be reviewed by the City and the Independent Certifier and requires final confirmation by the Independent Certifier.

Once RSA is achieved, the City will need up to 4 weeks to conduct final preparations for our launch of the system to our customers. During that time, we will be conducting operational training, drills and exercises, bus/rail planning and service changes, and the Ready for Rail campaign will be enhanced to ensure a safe and reliable transition for our customers.
