Transit Technology

Multiple transit technologies were reviewed and evaluated for the Relief Line.

Subway is recommended because it:

  • Provides sufficient capacity for long-term ridership needs
  • Provides high speeds and frequent service to attract passengers away from the Bloor/Danforth subway
  • Provides a direct transfer to the Bloor/Danforth subway
  • Supports city-building goals and objectives
  • Minimizes disruption and impact to existing neighbourhoods
  • Can use existing facilities for vehicle storage and maintenance
