Metrolinx Proposes 12 Name Changes for Finch West, Hurontario LRT Stops

TORONTO: January 29, 2018 – Metrolinx is inviting the public to share their thoughts on proposed name changes for some of the Finch West and Hurontario LRT stops — a move that will help avoid duplication and rider confusion.

Metrolinx has established a set of best practices for transit stop naming principles which are being used to determine the final stop names for the new LRT lines. The planned construction of hundreds of kilometres of new rapid transit in the region over the coming decades requires a consistent strategy to make the network easy to navigate and to avoid customer confusion. Metrolinx’s stop-naming principles (“simple, logical, durable/relevant, self-locating and unique”) will help achieve this.

Metrolinx is soliciting feedback on the proposed new stop names for the LRTs being built on Finch West in Toronto and on Hurontario in Peel Region. From January 29 to February 12, 2018 the public will be able to give their feedback online at metrolinxengage.com.

The Finch West LRT will be an 11-kilometre, 18 stops light rail service connecting people from the TTC Finch West Subway Station at Keele Street to Humber College. The Finch West LRT will connect with TTC, GO, Miway, Viva, and Züm transit services at the terminal Humber College stop. The naming principles require changes for four Finch West stops.

The Hurontario LRT will be a 20-kilometre, 22 stops light rail service connecting people from the Port Credit GO station to the Brampton Gateway Terminal. The Hurontario LRT will connect with the Port Credit and Cooksville GO stations, Mississauga Transitway, MiWay and Züm transit lines. Eight Hurontario stops require some changes to avoid any duplication or confusion.
