SSE - Tunnel Boring Machine Naming Contest

19 oct, 2021

Be a part of transit history! Here’s your chance to make your mark on a project that will transform how we travel across the region.

The three-stop Scarborough Subway Extension will extend the TTC’s Line 2 subway service nearly eight kilometres farther into Scarborough and provide seamless, reliable rapid transit to the people who live, work and play in this bustling part of the city. It will bring 38,000 more people and 34,000 more jobs within walking distance to transit.

Now, we’re inviting you to help us name the machine that will dig the tunnel for this important project! It's called a "tunnel boring machine" (TBM) and, with a 10.7-metre diametre, it will be the biggest of its kind in Toronto's transit history.

With the TBM expected to arrive on site in January 2022, there's a bit of time to get creative.

You can vote for your favourite name until December 22, 2021.
