The Municipal, Provincial and Federal Governments are committed to improving and expanding transit across Toronto. A clear mandate is in place, and billions of dollars’ worth of approved and funded projects are already under construction or entering service (e.g., Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension, Automatic Train Control and Operation on the Yonge-University-Spadina Line , articulated buses, new streetcars and subway trains, GO expansion, Union Station expansion and the Eglinton Crosstown LRT).
There is also clear direction from City Council to better serve rapid transit users and Scarborough’s 650,000 residents by delivering a fast, efficient and reliable subway system that extends the Bloor-Danforth line north from Kennedy Station. That’s why the City of Toronto and the TTC are implementing the first major expansion of the subway network in Scarborough in a generation; the Scarborough Subway Extension. This new line is expected to carry 9,500 to 14,000 customers in the peak hour and peak direction by the year 2031.
Between now and the end of 2016 , the City and the TTC will work together to plan the proposed Scarborough Subway Extension including determining the route, the station locations, the construction methods and any steps required to maximize benefits and mitigate potential negative impacts. At the end of this study, recommendations – which will have been shaped through public input – will be presented to both the TTC Board and City Council for approval.
The City and TTC are committed to balancing the need to work quickly with careful, thorough, diligent and professional analysis, knowing that timely planning will contribute to building the great City we all want to live in.
