One-stop Scarborough subway inches closer to reality

Will Toronto city council finally make a concrete decision regarding the oft-discussed Scarborough subway? Let's hope so.

Yesterday, as Metro Toronto reports, Mayor John Tory and the Executive Committee voted in favour of having city staff study and report back on the new transit plan that chief planner Jennifer Keesmaat released last week.

In this updated plan, the Scarborough subway runs right from Kennedy Station to the Scarborough Town Centre, saving the city around $1 billion - enough to build a 17-stop LRT that connects the incoming Eglinton Crosstown to the University of Toronto's Scarborough campus.

Are you in favour of the one-stop plan? Let us know in the comments.
