Mayor Tory and Council approve Doug Ford’s Toronto Transit Takeover Plan

GOOD: Thanks to the hard work of TTCriders and allies, over 10,000 residents and 100’s of volunteers, Doug Ford has agreed not to upload our subway system.

BAD: Toronto must approve all of Ford’s transit priorities: Ontario Line, 3-stop Scarborough Subway Extension, Eglinton West LRT, Yonge Extension to Richmond Hill.

What does this mean for Scarborough?

  1. No replacement for the ScarboroughRT until 2030                                              
  2. No Eglinton East or Sheppard East LRT
  3. Privatized transit
