Eglinton Crosstown LRTA midtown connection between east and west Toronto with 25 stations along a dedicated route.
- What We're Building
In November 2015, Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario announced that Crosslinx Transit Solutions (CTS) – a consortium of SNC-Lavalin, EllisDon, AECON, and ACS Infrastructure Canada – has signed a contract to complete the Eglinton Crosstown LRT project. Using the Alternative Financing and Procurement (AFP) delivery model, Crosslinx’s winning proposal commits them to:
- design, construct and finance an integrated transit system consisting of 25 stations/stops, track work, signaling, communications and other required infrastructure; and
- maintain the LRT system for 30 years, including lifecycle repair, and renewal of building and system components.

Stops & Stations
From east to west, the Crosstown LRT connects with more transit across midtown better than ever before. From accessing TTC Line 1 at both Yonge and further west at Cedarvale, to linking with three GO Stations and a larger network of buses, the Crosstown LRT really serves the larger GTA community by reaching out across the entire region.
With 25 stops between Kennedy in the east and Mount Dennis in the west, residents and visitors alike will find it truly convenient to hop on the Crosstown LRT to access work, do errands, grab a bite, or visit friends across the city.
Mount Dennis Station will be the Western terminal station of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT project, located at the intersection of Weston Road and Eglinton Avenue West.
The station is a Mobility Hub and will include: a transfer to the GO Transit Kitchener Line and UP Express, an off-street TTC Bus Terminal and a Passenger Pick-Up and Drop-Off (PPUDO) area. As a terminal station, Mount Dennis will include special track work for LRT operations.
The station will have three accessible entrances:
- the main entrance will be at the west end of the station between Weston Road and the GO Transit Kitchener corridor, with an underground connection from the main entrance to 3500 Eglinton Avenue West (the former Kodak building);
- the secondary entrance will be at east of the GO Transit Kitchener corridor on the north side of Eglinton Avenue West; and
- the third will be at 3500 Eglinton Avenue West.
A new GO station and a new UP Express station will be constructed as part of the project. The GO and UP Express platforms will be accessible from the underground connection between the main entrance and 3500 Eglinton Avenue West. The GO and UP Express waiting area and public washrooms will be located on the main level of 3500 Eglinton Avenue West.
The bus terminal will include 15 bus bays for TTC buses and will have an underground, accessible connection to the 3500 Eglinton Avenue West building.
The PPUDO will be designed to be jointly used by the LRT line, TTC, GO and UP Express passengers. There will be four taxi stands adjacent to the PPUDO.
Retail spaces will be located in the main and basement levels of 3500 Eglinton Avenue West and in the bus terminal.
Station plazas will be located at the main entrance and at 3500 Eglinton Avenue West.
There will be 40 outdoor and 80 indoor bicycle parking spaces. The indoor bicycle storage will be located at the main entrance.
We're transforming the Kitchener Line into a two-way, all-day rapid transit line.
More trips, more trains, more of what you need.
