About the Project:
Transit-oriented communities (TOC) are part of the government’s plan to build new, sustainable transit. TOC will enhance Ontario’s " New Subway Transit Plan for the GTA” by placing more housing and jobs near or at transit stations along the routes of the province’s four priority subway projects, including the Ontario Line, the Yonge North Subway Extension, the Scarborough Subway Extension, and the Eglinton Crosstown West Extension.
The TOC approach provides real opportunities to build vibrant, higher density, mixed-use communities that are connected to transit stations. By working with third-parties to integrate transit and community development, TOC will make commuting easier and faster – bringing more jobs and more housing closer to transit. TOCs will also reduce traffic congestion, reduce emissions and build integrated, accessible communities that will benefit future and current residents.
Infrastructure Ontario is leading the development of TOC’s related to the priority subway projects while Metrolinx is leading TOC on GO Rail and Light Rail Transit Stations.
