Bruce McCuaig is leaving his position as president and CEO of Metrolinx.

After 6 1/2 years at the helm of the Crown agency responsible for the integration of transportation and transit in the Greater Toronto-Hamilton Area, McCuaig has accepted a post at the Privy Council office as an Executive Adviser for the Canada Infrastructure Bank.

The former Ontario deputy minister of transportation has helped steer The Big Move, a plan that has seen significant expansion of transit services throughout the region, including the early stages of the $13.5 billion Regional Express Rail.

In a message to Metrolinx staff, chairman J. Robert S. Pritchard said that “Bruce’s leadership has contributed to every aspect of Metrolinx’s success. His work ethic is legendary. His deep knowledge of planning, transportation and infrastructure developed over his entire career has been invaluable. His calm and unflappable leadership style has kept Metrolinx clearly focused on its mission. His exceptional collaborative skills have built strong partnerships with all levels of government and key stakeholders. And his unerring integrity and commitment to non-partisan public service have set the standard high for all who work at Metrolinx.”

John Jensen, Metrolinx’s chief capital officer, has been named interim CEO starting April 14, 2017.
