The federal treasury is getting ready to hand out nearly $1.5 billion for transit upgrades across the country.
Hamilton, however, is not on the original list of cities that will receive money for things like track upgrades, new buses, shelters and upgrades to stations.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Premier Kathleen Wynne will announce the signing of the agreement in Barrie Tuesday.
Five Ontario cities are among the first recipients, including Toronto, Waterloo and Ottawa.
About $500 million of the projects being announced tonight will be in Toronto, with Ottawa next on the list at $156 million.
Waterloo, Barrie and Sudbury, where the federal cabinet just wrapped up a two-day retreat, will receive about $30.6 million combined for 20 projects.
