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.
