Toronto's Future Transit Network

February 16, 2016 - Updated: February 16, 2016

We might be getting closer to this necessary dream as the city begins with ideas for developing new transit lines in Toronto. Tonight, is the first of many open houses happening in select open houses across the GTS. The city's future transit system is beginning to materialize at a local Catholic Secondary School tonight. The goal is introduce seven projects and upgrades that could be an addition to Toronto's transit network. 


The plan includes LRT line on the Harbourfront and Jane Street,plans, the often discussed and much needed Downtown Relief Line, the Scarborough subway extension (and extended Crosstown LRT), SmartTrack and integrated fares. 


As the Star reports today, chief city planner Jennifer Keesmaat recognizes the need to get the GTA moving by working on multiple projects simultaneously and not just one at a time, as per the status quo.


The main issue is funding. Planners can dream as big as fantasy mapmakers, but nothing gets built without investment from all levels of government. That said, it's crucial to have a vision for transit expansion, and this one is adequately ambitious. 


The first round of regional meetings will run until March 22. But, as the Star notes, they'll happen twice yearly moving forward.
