To be fair, many Metrolinx detractors mention UPX as a case study against the LRT.

While UPX has admittedly been bungled in many ways, they finally are modifying UPX rapidly to be part of Toronto's transit system now.

Ridership has skyrocketed (more than doubled) now that they dropped fares to exactly match GO fares, and you can tap on a GO Presto reader to board UPX now, treating it like a GO train. For electrification they are likely going to merge UPX into the general RER plan, with lower-cost transit style operations when they electrify it as part of the funded $13.5bn GTHA GO RER plan.
