The SmartTrack Stations Program will improve transportation choices within Toronto by leveraging existing transit infrastructure to serve more people. Combined with Metrolinx’s GO Expansion Program, SmartTrack will transform heavy rail infrastructure in Toronto from a regional commuter service into an urban rapid transit network. SmartTrack, as originally defined, included six new stations along the Kitchener and Stouffville/Lakeshore East corridors. The province’s New Subway Transit Plan for the GTA will be adding stations near Gerrard-Carlaw and Lawrence-Kennedy, making those two originally-planned SmartTrack stations redundant. The Province and City have since agreed to remove the Gerrard-Carlaw and Lawrence-Kennedy locations and add Bloor-Landsdowne. The five SmartTrack Stations include: Finch-Kennedy, East Harbour, King-Liberty, Bloor-Landsdowne, and St. Clair-Old Weston. The cost includes both $1.195 billion for Base Station Infrastructure and $268 million for City-Initiated station requirements, which consists of all station-related capital costs including without limitation the costs for planning, design, capital financing, risk, contingency, escalation, project management and property acquisition. Request for Proposals (RFPs) are expected to go out for the following SmartTrack stations in early 2022: St. Clair-Old Weston; Finch-Kennedy; and King-Liberty; Bloor-Landsdowne.
