Thank You to all Residents and Community Members.
Thank you to all of the residents and community members in Scarborough who have shared their thoughts about the Eglinton East LRT project so far! During July, August and September 2018, we heard from more than 700 people in the community and had close to 11,000 visits to the website. We met people at bus stops, shopping malls and community centres. We had lunches with stakeholders and walking tours with residents. We went to two high schools and heard ideas from students.
The input we have received has been great! Our team is now working hard to incorporate your feedback into the project. To find out more about the consultation completed so far and what is coming up head to the Get Involved page. There will be more consultation activities in 2019.

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, Morningside, to the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus and to Malvern Town Centre.
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.

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!
Have your say on the future of the Eglinton East LRT
During July, August and September of 2018 The Eglinton East LRT Project Team hosted community consultations in four Scarborough communities along the LRT corridor.
