Open houses will highlight plans for Light Rail Transit line along Finch Avenue West
The City of Toronto and Toronto Transit Commission are hosting three public open houses to present plans to implement a Light Rail Transit (LRT) line along Finch Avenue West, between Yonge Street and Highway 27.

The meetings will showcase the transit improvement opportunities and alternative design concepts being considered for the project.
