Scarborough subway plan may change yet again

What's happening with the Scarborough subway? Well, according to the the Globe and Mail, it may soon be up for debate yet again thanks to a revised transit plan for Toronto's east end.

As the Toronto Star reports, in this newfangled plan the Bloor-Danforth subway line runs right from Kennedy Station to the Scarborough Town Centre.

By bypassing intermediary stations (Sheppard and Lawrence), the city can save $1 billion (on the more than $3.5 billion subway plan), leaving money available to extend the Eglinton Crosstown LRT eastward, possibly to the University of Toronto's Scarborough campus.

If you want to see what this looks like, Toronto Star's transportation reporter Tess Kalinowski tweeted out a map of the proposed route.
