LRT vehicles can carry more passengers and go faster than streetcars or buses.
Laird Station will be an underground station located at the intersection of Laird Drive and Eglinton Avenue East. The station will also be a turnback station and will have special trackwork for LRT operations.
A turnback station allows trains to change directions. The special trackwork allows a train to be stored between the tracks. For example, a disabled train could be stored there so it does not disrupt service.
The main, fully accessible entrance will be located at the southwest corner of Eglinton Avenue and Laird Drive. This entrance will also include a station plaza and retail spaces at street level. The secondary entrance will be located south of Eglinton Avenue East, just east of Laird Drive.
There will be on-street connections to TTC buses, and 60 outdoor bicycle parking spaces.
