Highlights of the LRT project include:

  • 11 kilometres of new, dedicated light rail transit between Humber College and the new Finch West Subway Station on the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension
  • 16 surface stops, a below-grade terminus stop at Humber College, and an underground interchange station (Keele Street and Finch Avenue West) at the TTC’s Finch West Subway Station
  • A maintenance and storage facility for the light rail vehicles
  • Other required components, such as trackworks, signaling, communications, and public realm infrastructure

In conjunction with the Finch LRT project, the Government of Ontario has opened a new Finch West LRT community office at 2540 Finch Ave. West to serve those living and working in nearby neighbourhoods. The community office will provide up-to-date information about the project directly to the public, in addition to other community outreach initiatives.

Over the next several months, submissions will be evaluated and a preferred proponent is expected to be announced in spring 2018. A fairness monitor is overseeing the entire procurement process.
