Metrolinx Finalizes Eglinton Crosstown Station Names

The Eglinton Crosstown will finally get station names, but not before one last conference call today.

Metrolinx will hold a special meeting via teleconference today at 2:00 p.m. to determine—once and for all—the names of the stations along the 19-kilometre, 26-stop Eglinton Crosstown LRT now under construction. The new line, which is being constructed by the regional transport agency, is scheduled to open in September 2021, and according to ReNew magazine, is the largest infrastructure project in Canada by dollar value.Today’s teleconference follows months of developing a standard approach to station names, public consultations, and debates at both the Metrolinx and TTC boards on the merits of each stop’s moniker.Getting station names right is important. Station names should, where possible, be unique, intuitive, and simple enough that you can provide directions. Short station names are helpful as they’re easier to display on maps, signs and display boards.
