Greetings from Eglinton Avenue West!

Handing out postcards about Eglinton West LRT

We've been handing out postcards about the Eglinton West LRT at various bus stops along Eglinton Avenue West.

Rapid transit on Eglinton West from Mount Dennis to Renforth Station (Commerce Boulevard), and beyond to Pearson International Airport will mean more travel connections for local and area residents and better access to businesses and jobs.

School Visit: Martingrove Collegiate Institute

School Visit Martingrove Collegiate Institute

We visited Martingrove Collegiate Institute to speak to students about the project. Many students told us that they live close to the Eglinton West corridor and are excited about how much easier it will be travelling to school once the LRT is in service.

If your school or youth organisation is interested in learning more about the Eglinton West LRT or transit planning and delivery processes in the City, please contact us at eglintonwestlrt@toronto.ca. We can host classes/workshops related to Geography, Visual Arts, Civics, Canadian & World Issues and Math.

Planning and Streetscape Walking Tour #2, September 25

Eglinton West LRT Walking Tour 2

We held another walking tour on September 25. Luckily, the rain held off and we were able to walk from Rangoon Rd, under the 427, to Martin Grove Rd. During this segment of the tour, we discussed innovative ways to transform the underpass to make it more comfortable, safe, appealing, and cyclist and pedestrian friendly. The TTC bus then drove us to Kipling Ave, Royal York Rd and Scarlett Rd. At these stops, we talked about elements of the streetscape that could be improved, important heritage sites and potentially upgrading existing infrastructure to accommodate increases in pedestrian and cyclist volumes.

You can still participate in the Planning and Streetscape Study by visiting and commenting on our interactive map: www.eglintonwestlrt.ca/socialpinpoint
