Welcome to Metrolinx Engage, where you can learn more about Metrolinx projects and find out how you can give feedback. Having your say is what this site is all about. Before exploring the individual engagement opportunities on this site, here’s a brief introduction to Metrolinx.
Metrolinx plans, builds and delivers. Our goal is to transform the way the region moves by championing long-term transportation and transit solutions that enhance prosperity, sustainability, and quality of life. Guided by an award-winning Regional Transportation Plan, Metrolinx is implementing the biggest transit expansion in Canadian history with more than 200 projects currently underway across the region. Whether you drive or ride, a better transportation and transit system benefits us all because it means less time getting there and more time being there.

Additional Feedback Invited on Eglinton Crosstown Station Names - Part 2:
Many thanks to all who participated in our recent Eglinton Crosstown station name engagement. Your feedback was very helpful and has in fact resulted in proposed changes to some station names. For instance, Silverthorne is now named Keelesdale, and Oriole Park is now named Avenue.
To avoid confusion and to shorten names at surface stops, we have decided to eliminate reference to Eglinton as the cross-street (e.g. Wynford & Eglinton will instead simply be Wynford). This decision affects three stops whose major intersecting streets are already used as TTC station/stop names elsewhere on the network. We’d like your reaction to the newly proposed names of these three surface stops:
- Leslie & Eglinton will become Sunnybrook Park
- Victoria Park & Eglinton will become Wexford
- Warden & Eglinton will become Golden Mile
