The Eglinton West Light Rapid Transit (LRT) line will close a gap in our transit network, providing a continuation of crosstown services, and a connection to Pearson airport area and the west end.
The Eglinton West LRT will serve existing and projected population growth, providing sustainable transportation choices that meet city-building objectives:
- Help shape our evolving neighbourhoods
- Create connected spaces and invest in social and physical services and infrastructure fundamental to the city’s quality of life
- Develop an attractive and safe city that evokes pride, passion, and a sense of belonging

The City of Toronto in partnership with the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) and Metrolinx has examined the feasibility of a proposed SmartTrack heavy rail corridor from the Mount Dennis Station to the Mississauga Airport Corporate Centre. Several corridor options were evaluated for this proposed rapid transit link.
Detailed technical work has been completed on the estimated travel demand for SmartTrack, and the feasibility of the proposed SmartTrack Western Corridor.
