LRT vehicles can carry more passengers and go faster than streetcars or buses.
Stations and Stops
Station design is one of the most exciting and most critical components of the Crosstown construction.
There are a number of major considerations for station design, including accessibility, development potential, integration with surrounding communities, and management of construction disruption.
Station design is currently underway. The Crosstown team has hosted several public consultations on the station design progress.
All stations, stops and vehicles will be accessible for wheelchairs and strollers. The main station entrances will all have elevators and escalators and the vehicles will all have low floors for easy boarding. Each station will also have safety features such as Designated Waiting Areas and close circuit TV monitoring. All stations will have outoor bike parking, with at least 50% covered. Select stations (Mount Dennis, Eglinton West, Don Mills, Kennedy) will have secure indoor parking.

At Eglinton West Station (Allen Road) and Eglinton Station (Yonge Street) the Crosstown line will be built to cross underneath the existing subway lines. The design will include elevators and escalators as well as stairways for passengers to conveniently transfer between lines.
At Kennedy station, new LRT facilities will be built to ensure convenient connections between the upgraded Scarborough line and the Crosstown.
The station design will also include elevators and stairway access for passenger transfers to the Bloor-Danforth subway line and a walkway to connect to GO lines.
