February 25 – Getting it Right – Major Transit Investment Consultations

Our Ward 30 neighbourhoods are at the center of many new transit initiatives by the TTC, the City and Metrolinx, which is a provincial agency. The TTC Relief Line route is proposed to go from Pape Station to Queen. The Metrolinx Regional Express Rail (GO RER) plan is reviewing new GO RER/SmartTrack stations at Gerrard Square and the Lever Brothers site on the Don Roadway. The TTC’s Waterfront LRT will stretch across the waterfront to Leslie.

On Thursday, February 25 City Planning is hosting a public meeting at Riverdale Collegiate to give you an in-depth look at major transit priorities. This meeting will give an overview of the network planning approach, feasibility, timelines, and the priorities our City has set for transit expansion.

What: City Planning Transit Consultations
When: Thursday, February 25
Time: 6:30 – 8:30pm
Where: Riverdale Collegiate Institute, 1094 Gerrard St. East

After several false starts and debates focused on sloganeering, it’s time for Toronto’s transit planning to be based on ridership and dollars well spent.

The meeting will have a special focus on the Relief Line, which will pass through Ward 30. City Planning have recommended a ‘preferred corridor’ from Pape Station to Queen St. West, via Pape and Queen.

Along with the Relief Line, the consultations will include updates on GO Regional Express Rail and SmartTrack which will also pass through Ward 30.

The public consultations will also include information on Scarborough transit planning and waterfront transit expansion. For more information on these projects, visit the following:
