Two more open houses on future carhouse in Malvern,
April 7, 13



If you live in Malvern, you have two more chances to review and discuss plans for a new light rail vehicle facility near your neighbourhood.

On Wednesday, April 7, the City of Toronto and the TTC are hosting an open house to present the design they recommend for the new facility and you can comment on their plans. This meeting is part of the formal transit environmental assessment process.

On Tuesday, April 13, the City will hold another open house to discuss amending its zoning bylaw and official plan, which currently do not allow the TTC to build this type of facility on the site it’s chosen.

It wants to build the new facility at 8304 Sheppard Avenue East — a long, narrow piece of vacant land at the north-west corner of Conlins Road and Sheppard.

The new Sheppard carhouse will let the TTC store and maintain the vehicles that it needs to operate the Sheppard East light rail Transit City line that it recently started to build. The carhouse will also supply vehicles to the future Scarborough - Malvern Transit City line and the extended Scarborough rapid transit line. You can find out more about the Transit City light rail lines here and here.
