Changes Since June 2, 2009 Extension will be built in 2 phases SRT will use LRT technology SRT vehicles will be maintained at the Conlins Road facility Centennial College Station has been relocated to the east side of Progress, improving access to the campus Bellamy Station will be constructed in the future, when warranted by surrounding population and employment

Phased Construction Funding challenges resulted in reassessment of the alignment


Phase 1
SRT will be extended from McCowan to Sheppard Ave. The station at Sheppard will include a bus terminal and Passenger Pick Up and Drop Off (PPUDO)

Phase 2
SRT will be extended from Sheppard to Malvern Town Centre, when funding becomes available

With Phase 1 terminating at Sheppard, a bus terminal is required to provide a fast and convenient connection between the buses serving northeast Scarborough and the SRT SRT. Two possible locations have been considered considered.

Vehicle Technology
It has been determined that the SRT will be converted to LRT technology, using the same vehicles as the other Transit City LRT lines. Preferred Technology

Existing Mark I vehicles to be replaced with

LRT vehicles. SRT trains will be 3 cars in length (approximately 95m)

Maintenance Facility
As a result of the decision to use LRT technology:
SRT vehicles will be maintained at the Sheppard/Conlins Maintenance Facility, to save on operating and capital costs. This requires a connection between the SRT and Sheppard LRT lines. Until such time as all Transit City lines are constructed, the maintenance yard off Bellamy is not needed. TTC will continue to protect the Bellamy site for possible use in the future.
