Here are all the station names for the Crosstown LRT

Crosstown LRT TorontoAfter months of planning, which included consultations with the public and the TTC, Metrolinx finally settled on names for the Eglinton Crosstown LRT during a conference call earlier today.

At last month's board meeting on December 3, 2015, as the Torontoist reports, Metrolinx held a lengthy debate over what to call the stations at Dufferin and Bathurst Streets and Scarborough's Lebovic Avenue.

Now, according to the Toronto Star, Metrolinx board members have finally compromised on Fairbank, Forest Hill and Hakimi Lebovic, respectively. And, just in time because the board needed to provide names to Crosslinx, who's constructing the LRT line, before January 20.

Here, from west to east, is what Metrolinx decided on.

  • Mount Dennis
  • Keelesdale
  • Caledonia
  • Fairbank (Dufferin)
  • Oakwood
  • Cedarvale
  • Forest Hill (Bathurst)
  • Chaplin
  • Avenue
  • Eglinton
  • Mount Pleasant
  • Leaside (Bayview)
  • Laird
  • Sunnybrook Park (Leslie)
  • Science Centre
  • Aga Khan Park and Museum
  • Wynford
  • Sloane
  • O'Connor
  • Pharmacy
  • Hakimi Lebovic
  • Golden Mile (Warden)
  • Birchmount
  • Ionview
  • Kennedy

  • Yet, as the Star suggests, the naming saga might not be over. The Metrolinx board may reconsider the name "Eglinton Crosstown LRT" altogether because apparently some of the incoming stations won't actually face Eglinton Avenue.
