The City of Toronto is planning SmartTrack – a regional express rail train service similar to the London Overground. It will have transfer points with the current TTC system.

SmartTrack will connect Scarborough to Markham, Union Station and Pearson International Airport. The plan proposes 3 stops in Ward 41:  Steeles, Finch and Sheppard. It will provide two-way train service, speeding up your commute and allowing you to spend more time with your family and friends.

This new rail service will share a common fare system with the TTC allowing riders to transfer between the two. This project will provide our community with better access to rapid rail-based public transit and relieve gridlock on other parts of the transportation network – including our roads and highways.
