In all fairness, the Board of Directors of any organization are chosen more for their overall general leadership and decision-making qualities. Specific skill sets like urban planning are represented at the staff level so they can do the heavy lifting and report recommendations based on their specific skill set to the board.

Nonetheless, it must be noted (and recognized) that the Metrolinx board includes a former mayor, the former CEO of GO Transit, and two professional urban planners (including the former chief urban planner for the City of Toronto), so there is significant experience in urban planning and transportation present at the table.
