We need to stop discussing Scarborough transit projects in isolation, and instead look at how an integrated network of express buses, LRTs and subways can create economic, cultural and social benefits for eastern Toronto. It’s time to look to the future and create a vision for Scarborough, so we can realize the benefits that investment in transit can bring. The subway extension to Scarborough Civic Centre can be a catalyst for investment. It can attract corporate headquarters, municipal offices and manufacturing companies and create employment opportunities. It can provide transit to a new living arts centre that showcases Scarborough’s rich diversity and hosts cultural events. It can revitalize the Civic Centre and allow it to flourish and become the vibrant and dynamic place it was intended to be. It can stimulate development of new residential housing and create a new walkable neighbourhood.
