Ottawa in 2025 will feature 42 stations and 64 km of track.
Montreal in 2019 has 68 stations and 69km of track. (plans to expand the Blue line will add 5 stations and 7km of track).
Toronto in 2019 has 75 stations and 77km of track. (construction in progress will add another 22 stations and 19km of track).

Both Montreal and Toronto are either expanding or have plans to expand their service, so these numbers will change by 2025.
