The Future of Transit

A lot of people have been asking me what areas will be developing and where there will be transit in the future.

Here is a summary of a couple of projects going on in Toronto that will be completed in the next couple of years. Something to think about if you’re looking to buy, sell or invest! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

  1. Spadina Subway Extention

    As you may know, the TTC will cross municipal boundaries into York Region.

    The Downsview Subway station will be extended past Steeles Ave West, all the way to Vaughan. This is expected to be completed by 2015.

    Below is the planned route map, with service levels expected to be every 4 minutes:

  2. Eglinton – Scarborough Crosstown

    Recently, it was announced that the crosstown light rail transit will now be made underground. As Canada’s most expensive infrastructure project, this will provide an added convenience for those travelling East to West and reduce the strain on the already overflown Highway 401.

    This 25km project will run from Kennedy to Black Creek in only 35 minutes, and is expected to be completed in 2020.

    Below is the route map:

  3. Air Rail Link

    The Air Rail Link (ARL) is an express rail shuttle service that will run from Union Station to Pearson Airport. It will link to major TTC and Go Transit stations for added convenience.

    Construction has already begun and is expected to be completed for the Pan Am Games in 2015.
