Line 3 Scarborough, better known as the Scarborough RT, is a light metro line part of the TTC - The line runs entirely within the district of Scarborough encompassing six stations and 6.4 km (4.0 mi) of track situated almost entirely above ground - It connects with Line 2 Bloor–Danforth at Kennedy and terminates at McCowan via Scarborough Centre

The line remained unchanged since its opening in 1985 and contains two of the least used stations in the system - Its revitalization and expansion plan—whether to convert the line into using modern light rail vehicles or to close the line and extend Line 2 Bloor–Danforth further into Scarborough—has been debated for over a decade by the City of Toronto - In September 2013, the Government of Ontario, under Premier Kathleen Wynne, announced it would fund the extension of Line 2 to Scarborough City Centre along a new alignment, which will result in the eventual closure of Line 3
