Living in Toronto means transit is a part of our daily lives. Planning and delivering reliable public transit is essential to ensuring our community remains a great place to live and work.
Reducing congestion and getting residents moving is a top priority for Council. This means making sure we have the road infrastructure we need, and expanding the alternatives so more residents can get out of traffic and onto transit or bikes. I’ll keep pushing for better cycling infrastructure locally and connecting Ward 30 to the downtown, and for smart investments in public transit expansion for reliable transit.
Our community knows first-hand that transit planning and construction can be disruptive and frustrating. I’m committed to work with you to ensure that the disruption is minimized, and that getting around our neighbourhood is as easy as possible.
The City of Toronto and the TTC are planning for the “Relief Line”, a future rapid transit line that would connect downtown Toronto to the Bloor-Danforth Subway east of the Don River. It will assist in relieving crowding on the Yonge Subway line and the Bloor-Yonge interchange station as well as provide riders with more travel options.
The TTC is committed to making its services accessible and modern. As part of this commitment the TTC will be replacing its current fleet of streetcars with new, low floor, accessible vehicles. In order to maintain the new fleet, the TTC has built a new maintenance and storage facility, located at the corner of Leslie and Lake Shore.
