This project will replace Toronto’s aging Scarborough Rapid Transit (RT) line with LRT technology, while extending it northward to meet the planned Sheppard East LRT. The Scarborough RT currently connects the end of the subway system at Kennedy station with the Scarborough Town Centre shopping mall and McCowan Road. The total length of the new line will be 10 km.

Like the Sheppard LRT, the project was originally part of the TTC’s Transit City program, which was cancelled by the current municipal government. It has now been taken up by the Province, which will wholly fund it through the Metrolinx regional transit agency.

Work is expected to begin in 2014 and be complete by 2020.
