Parsons is part of a Joint Venture that provides technical advisory services for two major work packages tendered under Metrolinx's 10-year Regional Express Rail (RER) Capital Program. The RER Capital Program – a CAD $13.5 billion undertaking that also includes a CAD $7 billion State of Good Repair and Optimization and Expansion program – is designed to transform the GO Transit rail network in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) to a two-way, all-day electrified service, where trains run every 15 minutes or better. This program will significantly boost the frequency and overall number of trips the GO Transit system offers. Metrolinx anticipates increased GO Transit ridership to approximately 127 million customers within five years of the RER Capital Program's completion and expects to reduce journey times for select cross-region transit trips by as much as 50 percent.

Plans and defines team goals and devises methods to accomplish them; develops in-depth knowledge of client objectives, contract terms, and corporate policies. Should be familiar with the integration of engineering/technical aspects, as well as procurement and construction activities.
