Transportation on the waterfront needs a new vision.  Led by the TTC and Waterfront Toronto, a new plan is being created for a comprehensive waterfront transit network. This is your opportunity to get involved.
 

Project Background

 

This phase 1 study is being undertaken by the City of Toronto, in partnership with the Toronto Transit Commission and Waterfront Toronto in order to help establish a vision and plan for a comprehensive waterfront transit network.

As you are aware, Toronto’s waterfront is currently undergoing a significant transformation, with rapid residential, commercial and recreational growth in many areas along the water’s edge. In the past, transit planning along the waterfront has been incremental.  This has resulted in a plan that is not integrated or comprehensive and cannot respond to the current and future anticipated demand for transit along much of the waterfront.

During this study, They will be reviewing existing waterfront transit, previously planned transit initiatives, and current and future transit needs. A range of transit alternatives will be developed and evaluated to help determine a preferred east-west waterfront transit solution that will integrate north/south transit and active transportation, linking people from across the City to the waterfront and its nearby destinations and attractions.

 

Upcoming Public Consultations

 

They have organized two public meetings, one in the western waterfront and one located more centrally.   These meetings will be used to present the vision and purpose for this study and you will be invited to provide feedback.
