Taking Eglinton Crosstown Further

The proposed Eglinton Crosstown West Extension will bring even more rapid transit to Etobicoke and Mississauga to make it easier for people to get where they need to be each day.

The proposed extension of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT will run 9.2 kilometres from the future Mount Dennis LRT station to Renforth Drive and will operate mainly underground, helping to reduce travel times and improve access to jobs, schools and other destinations throughout the Greater Toronto Area.

Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario are working together to deliver the project, which is estimated to be complete by 2030-31.

Where will it take me?

The proposed extension will offer convenient links to other destinations throughout the region – UP Express and Kitchener Line GO Train service at Mount Dennis, TTC bus services at all transit stops in Toronto, and MiWay and GO Bus services via the Mississauga Transitway at Renforth Drive.

Plans are also being explored with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority to extend the line another 4.7 kilometres to Pearson International Airport.

All alignments, stations, stops, locations, names and quantity of stations/stops are conceptual and subject to change.
