Eglinton Crosstown Line


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Eglinton Crosstown line is a partially underground light rail line that is under construction in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It will be owned by Metrolinx and operated by the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). The line was conceived in 2007 by then Toronto Mayor David Miller and then chair of the TTC Adam Giambrone as part of Transit City, a large-scale transit expansion plan consisting of other proposed light rail transit lines. It is expected to be completed in 2021.[4]

The Eglinton Crosstown Line will run for 19 km (12 mi) from Black Creek Drive to Kennedy Station.[3] There will be up to 25 stations, with an estimated 100 million trips annually in 2031.
