TTC Transit City Overview

Transit City is an initiative to build eight new Light Rail Transit (LRT) lines to neighbourhoods and areas currently not served by rapid public transit. These routes will reinforce the public transit focus of the City of Toronto’s Official Plan. Electrically-powered Light Rail Vehicles (LRVs) will travel in reserved lanes providing a smooth, fast and comfortable transit experience. Transit City routes will be accessible to customers with all levels of mobility and provide transit users with a high level of comfort and customer service.

Once implemented, the Transit City LRT lines will support local economic development and reduce greenhouse emissions by allowing people to choose public transit as a convenient alternative to the private automobile. Each line will provide seamless connections with the existing TTC subway system, GO Transit, other Transit City LRT routes and regional public transit networks.
