Given the fact that there is only 9 weeks left to turn the line over to the city and what I saw first hand, it may happen, but not in the current time frame.
Bayview station is the worse one of the ones I saw. All the stations entrance for the tunnel section were about 50% completed that I could see. There is a hole that was still having items being lower into the tunnel that needs to be close off and fill in.
I was to visit KW last week, but things came up to change my plans.
I haven't follow the ION project for some time and no idea if all the cars are on site as plan. Until they are and have been burn in, delaying training and testing the plan schedule. Need all the cars to test the schedule to make sure it will work or need adjustment.
Other then lacking cars, no idea what other issues have surface that will delay the opening of the ION line.
Regardless when and who open first, got 2 more LRT lines to ride in Ontario until 2021-2024 when 4 more lines will go into service unless Ford delays or kill 3 of them. Of the 3 that could be kill or delay, Hurontario line is almost certain it will be built since Mississauga fully support it and no opposition on council to kill it.
They are working 24/7 in Ottawa, I was actually surprised that the hole down into the tunnel where the crane was last week is now filed in days later, it vanished virtually overnight. It looks like it will come down to the wire, but they are pulling out all the stops to make the date.
It seems a quite different story in KW, where people have been looking at complete stations for a year now, but still no service
