Planning for a new rapid transit line to connect Line 1 Yonge-University, downtown to Line 2 Bloor-Danforth, east of the Don River is underway.

The City of Toronto’s City Planning Division, together with the TTC, is planning a new rapid transit line to connect Line 1 Yonge-University, downtown to Line 2 Bloor-Danforth, east of the Don River. This line will relieve crowding on Line 1 Yonge-University, at Bloor-Yonge Station, and on the surface transit routes coming in and out of downtown.

The City of Toronto, TTC and Metrolinx are working closely together on coordinated transit planning in Toronto. Six major transit studies are interrelated:

Yonge Relief Network Study

Network analysis by the City of Toronto and TTC

SmartTrack
SmartTrack Eglinton Corridor Feasibility Study

These projects have a significant impact on the overall transit network: They will improve the network by creating connections between future projects and existing lines, and represent a coordination or regional and local priorities.
