Information provided below is taken from Issue 01 of Neighbourhood Update

Produced by the City of Toronto and the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC)

The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) and the City of Toronto are undertaking the preliminary planning for an Environmental Assessment Study to identify a potential Light Rail Transit (LRT) corridor connecting Kennedy Subway Station with northern Scarborough.  This high quality transit service will begin at Kennedy Subway Station.  The preliminary preferred alignment will travel east along Eglinton Ave, northeast on Kingston Road, north on Morningside Avenue to Sheppard Avenue where it would interline with the proposed Sheppard East LRT.  It would proceed westerly to Neilson Road, and north along Neilson Road to the Malvern Town Centre.  The LRT route would provide service to University of Toronto Scarborough Campus and Centennial College Ellesmere Campus.

As part of this study, a series of transfer connection options will be examined.  Some key connections to be evaluated are at the Eglinton Avenue/Kingston Road intersection with the proposed Kinston Road transit improvements, at Eglinton and Guildwood GO Stations, at Kingston Road / Lawrence Avenue / Morningside Avenue intersections with existing busy bus routes, and with the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus.  The connection details at Kennedy Subway Station, including connections to the future Eglinton Crosstown LRT, and the Scarborough Rapid Transit (SRT) Line, and connection details at Malvern Town Centre with the Scarborough Rapid Transit (SRT) Line and corridor details along the proposed Sheppard East LRT are being developed by other studies.  In addition to the Scarborough-Malvern LRT, the City and the TTC are currently involved in a number of transit-related studies throughout Toronto.

OPEN HOUSES: July 2008

One set of public open houses will take place during the planning process and one during the EA study.  Our first set of two open houses to showcase the transit improvement opportunity, alternative design concepts and preliminary preferred design concept(s) will take place as follows:

Wednesday, July 23rd, 6:30 - 9:00pm at Scarborough Village Recreation Centre, 3600 Kingston Road (Eglinton Ave and Kingston Rd)

Thursday, July 24th, 6:30 - 9:00pm at University of Toronto Scarborough, Science Wing Meeting Place, 1265 Military Trail

Toronto's Transit City: Light Rail Plan

The TTC's new Transit City Plan, unveiled in March 2007 establishes a network of rapid transit expansion in Toronto.  Transit City will provide fast and reliable public transit service, increase the mobility of Toronto residents, and provide system-wide connections to existing and future rapid transit services.  Scarborough Malvern LRT corridor is included among the corridors identified in the Plan.  More information on the Transit City Plan is available at:  www.transitcity.ca.

The transit City Plan proposes to introduce low floor, fully accessible Light Rail Vehicle service for the Scarborough-Malvern corridor.  Light rail transit is defined as a form of public transit that uses rail technology for vehicles operating in an exclusive right of way both on and off the road.
