Building transit in Scarborough: Eglinton East LRT is Scarborough’s transit corridor.

Endorsed by Council in 2016, the EELRT is a key part of the Scarborough Rapid Transit Network Plan to improve local accessibility and support the development of complete communities. Providing local transit connections, the Eglinton East LRT will build on Scarborough’s strengths, attracting investment and opportunity along the corridor. The Eglinton East LRT is more than a transit project, it is Scarborough’s transit corridor connecting people and places on Eglinton Ave, Kingston Road and Morningside. The LRT will support sustainable, economically vibrant and complete communities along the LRT route along with the opportunity to create an attractive and welcoming public realm.

The Eglinton East LRT is the easterly extension of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT from Kennedy Station along Eglinton Avenue East, Kingston Road and Morningside Avenue. The Eglinton East LRT will provide improved local transit access to over 40,000 residents who live within walking distance of the corridor. It will bring rapid transit to five Neighbourhood Improvement Areas, and two post-secondary campuses – University of Toronto Scarborough Campus and Centennial College Morningside Campus.

This map shows the route of the Eglinton East LRT that is being planned, running across Scarborough. Line 5 runs East-West along Eglinton Avenue, Northeast along Kingston Road, and North along Morningside Avenue and around UTSC, with a future extension north to Malvern. The line includes interchange stations at Kennedy (where the Eglinton Crosstown LRT, currently under construction, becomes the Eglinton East LRT), Eglinton GO, and Guildwood GO, as well as many other stops. Context is provided with lines for major streets that intersect or run alongside the LRT route, as well as with labels for adjacent neighbourhoods: Ionview, Kennedy Park, Eglinton East, Scarborough Village, Woburn, West Hill, Morningside, and Malvern.

Scarborough Rapid Transit Network

The Eglinton East LRT is a key part of the Scarborough rapid transit plan, along with the Scarborough Subway Extension, two new SmartTrack stations at Lawrence-Kennedy and Finch-Kennedy, and more rapid transit routes to come. Together, these projects will greatly improve transit connections in Scarborough. The Scarborough transit network is growing and the Eglinton East LRT is helping to make that happen!
