Relief Line project assessment: public consultations

The City of Toronto, in partnership with TTC, is planning the Relief Line – a new subway line to connect the Bloor- Danforth Subway east of the Don River with downtown. This line will relieve crowding on the Yonge-University-Spadina Subway (Line 1), at Yonge- Bloor Subway Station, and on the surface transit routes coming in and out of downtown.

Public meetings are being held to provide an update on major transit initiatives, including planning for the Relief Line. We are looking for your feedback on the results of the evaluation of alignment options.
