Etobicoke-Finch West LRT (TTC)


Etobicoke-Finch West LRT (TTC)

The Etobicoke-Finch West LRT is a proposed light rail line in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, as part of the Transit City proposal announced March 16, 2007, to be operated by the Toronto Transit Commission. It is expected to cost approximately $835 million. With construction to begin in 2010, the line is expected to open in 2013, the second of the seven Transit City lines to be complete after the Sheppard East LRT line.

Route layout

The Etobicoke-Finch West LRT line would run for 17.9 km, estimated to account for 25 million trips in 2021. The western terminus of the line would be built in the Highway 27/Humber College area in Etobicoke. The line would run along Finch Avenue West eastward, terminating at Finch Station on the Yonge-University-Spadina subway in North York. After the line is built, a future extension west into Mississauga may be considered.
