Cancel Sheppard East LRT sign now

We the undersigned petition the City of Toronto, the Toronto Transit Commission, the Province of Ontario and the Government of Canada to cancel construction of the Sheppard East LRT (and it's Finch West-Don Mills LRT connector) immediately.

We believe this is necessary due to its imposition of needless transfers (Don Mills, Yonge Street), the lack of any speed gains to be had from the addition of LRT (the LRT will still be stopping at red lights, just like the bus) and its convoluted stringing together of disparate corridors (Finch and Sheppard). A Sheppard East LRT would fragment transit services on Sheppard Ave. for decades to come (bus, subway, LRT).

In its place we strongly urge all parties to reassess extending the Sheppard Subway as originally planned, east to Scarborough Town Centre and west to Downsview to connect with the Spadina Subway, to create a true northern crosstown subway route to supplement Bloor-Danforth and connect two Urban Growth Centres (North York Centre and Scarborough City Centre) under the Ontario Places to Grow initiative. Currently Scarborough is the only Urban Growth Centre in the City of Toronto not served by a subway line. Furthermore, a Sheppard Subway stretching from Downsview to Scarborough Town Centre would make connections with three rapid transit corridors: the Spadina Subway, the Yonge Subway and the Scarborough Rapid Transit line (and possibly the Danforth Subway line in the future).
