The Progressive Conservatives are planning to allow dozens of new electronic billboards on Metrolinx rail lands in Toronto and other major centres, the Star has learned.

One day after Premier Doug Ford mused about installing billboards on 400-series highways to raise money for provincial coffers, Metrolinx quietly posted an "expression of interest" (EOI) seeking potential bids for urban advertising signage.

The provincial transit agency's posting on MERX's public tendering website appeared Tuesday.
