A map indicating the six different corridor design segments for the City of Toronto portion of the BRT project. Segment 1 is from Grangeway Avenue to Morningside Avenue; the design proposes to widen the segment to add two dedicated centre-median transit lanes and maintain existing four lanes for general traffic. Segment 2 is from Morningside Avenue to Military Trail; the design proposes buses to run in mixed traffic to match Eglinton East LRT planning, and maintain the existing four lanes for general traffic. Segment 3 is from Military Trail to Meadowvale Road; the design proposes to widen the segment and add two dedicated centre-median transit lanes and maintain existing four lanes for general traffic. Segment 4 is from Meadowvale Road to Kingston Road; the design proposes to widen the segment and add two dedicated centre-median transit lanes and maintain existing two lanes for general traffic. Segment 5 is from Kingston Road to Port Union Road; the design is to be confirmed in consultation with the Ministry of Transportation. Segment 6 is from Port Union Road to the Toronto-Pickering border; the design proposes buses to run in mixed traffic and maintain the existing 4 lanes for general traffic.

Orthophoto map depicting the western end of the proposed BRT corridor in the City of Toronto. The map identifies the location for the proposed bus terminal that will serve the Durham-Scarborough BRT. The location is southeast of Progress Avenue and McCowan Road. The map also identifies nearby proposed BRT stops.

Note that interim solutions may be implemented in segment 3 and 4 in advance of the ultimate design.

As part of the Scarborough Subway Extension, a new bus terminal is proposed. The terminal will accommodate GO, TTC and Durham Region Transit buses. This bus station will serve as the terminal for the Durham-Scarborough BRT service. The location and future routing of the terminal is still being determined.

Through public consultation, we received many suggestions to avoid routing buses through the intersection of Ellesmere Road and McCowan Road due to congestion.

The recommended route for the Durham-Scarborough BRT service is:

Westbound:
Ellesmere Road » Grangeway Avenue » TTC Bus Terminal

Eastbound:
TTC Bus Terminal » Grangeway Avenue » Ellesmere Road
