Transit services along the Yonge corridor are becoming increasingly crowded as the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area (GTHA) continues to experience unprecedented growth. In the face of this regional problem, Metrolinx, the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), the City of Toronto and York Region are working together to propose a regional solution.
Through the Yonge Relief Network Study, Metrolinx is looking at regional network options to relieve Yonge-University-Spadina subway crowding and improve how people move around the region. We are seeking input on the preliminary list of options and how we evaluate them. The City of Toronto, with support from the TTC, has initiated the first phase of the Relief Line Assessment Study, seeking public input on the study approach and a consultation plan. Following Council approval of this phase, the study will evaluate route and station options for a new rapid transit line connecting the central business district to the Danforth Subway Line.
These projects, along with complementary ongoing work at Metrolinx, York Region, the TTC and the City, form the Regional Relief Strategy. Public and stakeholder consultation will be integral to this process and we will be hosting a series of public meetings over the coming months. This session will include a joint presentation, followed by opportunities to provide specific feedback on the individual projects.
Please join us for the first round of consultation:
