The Sheppard East LRT is a 13-km light rail transit line that will run in a dedicated lane in the centre of the street, along the surface of Toronto’s Sheppard Avenue from Don Mills Station to Morningside Avenue. The line is projected to serve 3,000 people per hour in the peak direction by 2031.

A vital component of the new LRT line will be the Sheppard East Maintenance and Storage Facility. The facility will service the 100 light rail vehicles that will operate on the Sheppard East LRT and Scarborough RT. The 17,500-square-metre facility will be built on approximately 12.9 hectares of land located on the corner of Sheppard Avenue and Conlins Road.

Primary design and engineering work is currently underway. Completion is projected for 2021.
