This is what SmartTrack will probably look like

John Tory's SmartTrack is finally winging its way into existence. As the Toronto Star reports today, city planners will likely recommend building seven new stations when they release a massive transit report in two weeks time.

The SmartTrack would run along a GO corridor and would utilize stations there. The new ones include St. Clair West, Liberty Village, Unilever, Gerrard and Pape, Lawrence East, Ellesmere, and Finch East. This plan features 15 stops in total between Mount Dennis and Milliken.

As the Star writes, during the 2014 election, Tory promised a 22-stop SmartTrack route with 13 new stops. This one is markedly smaller, however, it'll still alleviate some of the congestion on the Yonge subway line during peak hours. It'll also be super convenient for those who need to travel into the downtown core from areas such as Liberty Village.
