What is the proposed plan for the Sheppard East LRT?


Sheppard East LRT has already begun heavy construction, and is scheduled to open in 2014.

  • The Sheppard LRT is planned to run 14 km with 30 stops, beginning at the end of the Sheppard subway (at Don Mills) and continuing to Meadowvale).
  • The Sheppard East LRT would run on the surface, in dedicated lanes throughout its length.
  • Projected ridership on this line is 3,100 passengers per hour at peak (compared with 30,000 on the Yonge Subway, and the “floor” of 15-20,000 considered necessary to make a subway viable.)
