What the Crosstown LRT stations might be named

The new Eglinton Crosstown LRT may be behind schedule, but that doesn't mean Metrolinx isn't thinking about what to name the 25 stations and stops that'll dot the new 19-kilometre line.

Metrolinx's Design Excellence Team has proposed names for each stop based on a set of three principles. To avoid confusion, it wants to give each one a unique name. It'll prioritize names based on street, neighbourhoods and landmarks as well as names that are familiar to our local lexicon.

Metrolinx is seeking input from the public until October 7. You can check out the transit corporation's rationale for some of the station and stop names online.
