City, Metrolinx, TTC host public meetings
on transit: June 13, 15, 17, 18, 20, 22, 24, 25



The City of Toronto, Metrolinx and the TTC are working together on several, related transit-planning initiatives to bring more transit to neighbourhoods across the city and region.

The initiatives include

  • GO Transit’s plan to introduce regional express rail service along all its lines;
  • Mayor John Tory’s electoral campaign transit promise, the SmartTrack above-ground rapid transit plan, including along the Eglinton West corridor;
  • the “Scarborough Subway”, extending the TTC’s 2 Bloor - Danforth line further into Scarborough; and
  • the “Relief Line”, a rapid transit line linking the eastern part of the 2 Bloor - Danforth line directly to downtown Toronto.

Together, these projects would vastly improve the transit network in Toronto and links between current transit lines and future projects across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area.

Toronto’s City Planning Division, Metrolinx and the TTC will host several joint public information sessions about these transit proposals. The events take place across the city from Saturday, June 13 to until Thursday, June 25. During each meeting, staff will present the same information about every project, but may emphasize one or more projects that most affe ct the local community in which they’re holding the meeting.

Events take place:

The City, Metrolinx and the TTC will consult again with Torontonians about these plans in September. It will also consult with other municipalities, including the City of Mississauga, the Region of Peel, the City of Markham and the Region of York.

City and TTC staff will present recommendations to the Toronto Transit Commission and City Council about SmartTrack (including the Eglinton West Corridor), the Scarborough Subway Extension and the Relief Line this fall.

SmartTrack (including the Eglinton West corridor)

The SmartTrack concept builds on the GO Transit’s regional express rail initiative. It proposes a 53-kilometre, all-day, two-way, frequent service operating within GO’s Kitchener and Stouffville / Lakeshore East corridors and a new heavy rail corridor to the Mississauga Airport Corporate Centre.

The City is working with the TTC and Metrolinx to undertake a feasibility review of options to connect SmartTrack from Mount Dennis station to the Mississauga Airport Corporate Centre.

Current consultation for SmartTrack focuses on receiving input on the conceptual alignments within each of the three options.

Scarborough Subway Extension

The City of Toronto and the TTC are planning to extend the 2 Bloor - Danforth subway line from Kennedy Station to Sheppard Avenue East. The extension would replace the aging 3 Scarborough rapid transit line and “allow for a seamless journey for transit users by eliminating the need to transfer at Kennedy Station”.

Current consultation for the Scarborough Subway Extension focuses on the preliminary evaluation of potential corridors and the potential alignments and station concepts within shortlisted potential corridors.

The Relief Line

The City of Toronto and the TTC are studying a new subway line to connect the 1 Yonge - University subway in downtown Toronto to the 2 Bloor - Danforth subway east of the Don River. This line would relieve crowding on Line 1, at Yonge - Bloor Station and on transit vehicles operating along other transit routes into and out of downtown.

Current consultation for the Relief Line focuses on the results of the evaluation of potential station areas and potential corridors.
