Eglinton Crosstown West
We’re continuing to work with Metrolinx and all levels of government to advance planning and design for the proposed connection of the Eglinton Crosstown West Extension to Toronto Pearson.
Expanding bus service
Alongside government, we’ve been working with multiple municipal transit operators to bring new services and improve existing routes, as demand for transit to and from the airport grows.
Given the well-understood benefits of transit, governments at all levels continue to assess and make decisions about new transit connections to and through the airport area and we’re working to ensure they are aware of the value of the potential investment.
In May 2021, the Government of Canada announced a substantial investment into Ontario’s priority transit projects —$12 billion dollars. Included in the federal government investment was their commitment to fund its share of the Eglinton Crosstown West Extension to Renforth Station.
Additionally, in 2022 the Government of Canada committed more than $142 million through Transport Canada’s Airport Critical Infrastructure Program (ACIP). These funds support various investments in airport technologies and infrastructure, including technical studies and concept design work for the proposed connection between the airport and the future extension of the Eglinton Crosstown West.
We are currently developing a new capital development plan for Toronto Pearson to meet Ontario and Canada’s future aviation needs. We will be able to provide an update when this work is complete.
