New Rapid Transit. For a rapidly growing city.
Toronto is more than a city. It’s an idea – it’s the 6ix. One out of every five Canadians live here, generating roughly one-fifth of all Canadian economic activity. It’s time for Toronto to take the next step as a city – building the transit we all need.
What if Union Station was easier to access and navigate? What if the city had connected light rail, running outside of regular traffic, so you could get where you need to go, as easily as possible? What if a new web of rapid transit was built to touch every corner of the city? What if GO service was increased, giving us electrified, frequent, all-day, transit on 5 separate lines, including new stations?
Wonder no more. This is the Toronto we’re building together; it will connect us to every part of the Greater Golden Horseshoe. And it’s happening right now.

new light rail transit
Here is some of what’s happening across Toronto:
The Finch West LRT will provide the economic boost Northwest Toronto needs. It’s going to cut travel and connection times, fuel economic growth and make the community a better place to live and play. It will have 18 stops, including 16 surface stops plus an underground interchange station at Finch West (connecting to the new Toronto-York-Spadina Subway Extension), and one below-grade terminal stop at Humber College, connecting to other local transit services like GO, Miway, Viva, and Züm.
Kipling Transit Hub will include new and improved pedestrian, bicycle and vehicle connections, and integrate subway, GO train, and local and regional bus services, including GO, TTC, and MiWay services. When complete, this transit hub in Toronto’s west end will help bring more seamless travel choices for commuters to get to where they need to be.
Major construction is underway to bring even more service to the communities along the Kitchener corridor in the future. Once complete, construction of two GO rail tunnels under highways 401 and 409 will accommodate two additional tracks, future electrification, signaling and communications infrastructure. This project is part of the GO Expansion program, which will transform the Kitchener line from a rush hour commuter service to a rapid transit experience.
The Eglinton Crosstown LRT project will be a 19-kilometre light rail transit line with 25 new stations and stops that will run along Eglinton Avenue from the Black Creek Drive in the west to Kennedy Station in the east.
All proposed new station stops are subject to completion of a full business case analysis.
