Extending the Scarborough RT: open house, June 2

Update — July 31, 9:43 a.m.: You can read the staff presentation from the open house here. (2.64 MB.pdf)

The TTC and the City of Toronto are planning to extend the current 3 Scarborough rapid transit line from its current terminal at McCowan Station northeastward into Malvern.

On Tuesday, June 2, TTC and City staff are holding an open house about the project. They intend to make presentations and display information describing how they propose to build the extended line, including the route and the site of future stations.

The extension will connect with the future Eglinton - Crosstown, Scarborough - Malvern and Sheppard East light rail Transit City lines.

You can learn about the project, ask staff questions and offer your suggestions, comments and ideas on how to improve the plans.

The event takes place from 6:30 until 9 p.m. at:

Sts. Peter and Paul Banquet Hall,
231 Milner Avenue
(at Scunthorpe Road, just west of Markham Road.)

Metrolinx lists extending the Scarborough RT as one of six priority projects for the Greater Toronto Area and Hamilton in The Big Move, its regional transportation plan.

In 2007, Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty also listed the project as a priority in his MoveOntario 2020 vision for transportation in the Greater Toronto Area and Hamilton.
