Transit City:
Eglinton Crosstown LRT open houses,
August 14, 19, 25, 27, September 4

Update — 1:47 p.m., Wednesday, August 13: The City and TTC will now hold a fifth open house on Thursday, September 4.

Next week, the City of Toronto and the TTC will host five public information centres as part of the environmental assessment protection for the next Transit City light rail transit line.

The Eglinton Crosstown LRT will travel along or under Eglinton Avenue from Kennedy Station on the 2 Bloor — Danforth subway and 3 Scarborough rapid transit lines, to the Eglinton and Eglinton West Stations on the 1 Yonge-University-Spadina subway and then to Renforth Drive. The line may also serve Toronto Pearson Air Terminal and connect with the proposed Scarborough Malvern, Don Mills Road and Jane LRT lines.

The City and TTC are proposing to replace the current bus service along Eglinton Avenue with electric-powered light rail transit vehicles. Since Eglinton is narrow in the middle of the city, the LRT vehicles would travel through an underground tunnel between Brentcliffe Road (east of Laird Drive) and Keele Street. On all other parts of Eglinton, the LRT vehicles would operate on the surface of the street, but in their own lanes, separate from all other traffic.
