TTC map 2035

This is what the TTC map could look like in 2035

It may not feel like it right now, but Toronto's rapid transit infrastructure is in the midst of major expansion. For all the fantasy maps we love to drool over, a look at the projects currently on the books, reveals a significantly different transit system by 2025.

But what if we looked forward another decade? If we fantasize just a little about projects that have been tabled (though not necessarily funded), the map gets rather dense with transit lines. If the city could get its act together and prioritize expansion, the Eglinton Crosstown might be extended in either direction and the Relief Line might finally become a reality.

TTC map 2035Add the already funded Finch West LRT and the Sheppard East LRT, and you have yourselves a TTC map that befits a city with a rapidly growing population. And bear in mind that this vision for 2035 doesn't include the East Bayfront LRT or SmartTrack, both of which have been considered serious candidates for expansion planning.

If this feels like a pipe-dream, that's because Toronto's track record has been so poor following the big dreams of Network 2011. But it's worth noting that this isn't a completely off the wall fantasy map. Each of these projects have been supported by planners and politicians. Now we just need the money. Isn't that always the case?
