TTC and City of Toronto staff are hosting six open houses to present their plans for the Eglinton - Crosstown light rail Transit City line this month.

During the events, staff will be available to answer your questions on the project and also make a presentation on how they propose to locate stations along the route.

They will also provide information on where they propose building the line on the surface and where they propose building a tunnel to accommodate the line underground. Staff will also review various options for building portals — entrances for light rail cars to enter and leave the underground portion of the line — around Black Creek Drive in the west and Brentcliffe Road in the east — and various potential routes for the line between the airport and Martin Grove Road.

The 31-kilometer-long line will stretch from Toronto Pearson International Airport to Kennedy Station on the TTC’s 2 Bloor - Danforth subway and 3 Scarborough rapid transit lines and the future Scarborough Malvern light rapid Transit City line.

Passengers traveling along the Eglinton - Crosstown LRT will be able to connect with other future Transit City lines along Jane Street and Don Mills Road, the Mississauga Transit / GO Transit bus rapid transit line and the the TTC’s current 1 Yonge - University - Spadina subway at Eglinton and Eglinton West Stations.

Also, at the Airport, the line will meet the future Metrolinx / GO Union - Pearson Rail Link and, possibly, depending on the final route, the future Etobicoke - Finch West Transit City light rail transit line. A future rail station in the Mount Dennis Community may also allow Eglinton - Crosstown passengers to transfer to GO’s Georgetown line and the Union - Pearson link. At Kennedy Station, the line will also meet GO’s 71 Stouffville commuter rail line.

The TTC and City plan to open the new line in 2021 and expect that the line will carry 51 million passengers every year.
