The Eglinton Crosstown Project is building the Eglinton Line, a 19-kilometre light rail transit (LRT) line that will run along Eglinton Avenue through the heart of Toronto, with a 10-kilometre underground tunnel in its central section. When it’s complete, the line will connect Mount Dennis in the west to Kennedy Road in the east, and will be up to 60% faster than bus service today.   

The Crosstown project is the largest transit expansion in the history of Toronto, and is one of the first wave of projects from Metrolinx’s award-winning 2008 Regional Transportation Plan for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.

As we begin to construct the underground stations and surface-level stops on the line, final names must be determined for each of the stations and stops.

Metrolinx’s Design Excellence team recently completed a study on regional transit wayfinding harmonization including station, stop, and interchange naming. As part of this, a set of principles was established for selecting names which, applied consistently across the regional transit network, will help to make transit easier to navigate and avoid customer confusion.

Applying these principles to the Eglinton line has led us to propose changes to the names of seven of the line’s stations and stops.

We invite you to learn more about the principles and to provide us with your input on the new names we’re proposing for the Eglinton Line’s stations and stops.  Please visit our Metrolinx Engage page. 

Comments are being accepted until Friday October 9th and shortly after that, we will share a report containing all the comments we received.
