Origin

(September 12, 2017) Report from the Deputy City Manager, Cluster B, the General Manager, Transportation Services and the Acting Executive Director and Chief Planner, City Planning

Summary

This report responds to a request from Council to undertake consultation with key commuter parking stakeholders to contextualize, assess, vision, and provide commuter feedback on the commuter parking needs along the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension (TYSSE). To accomplish this, this report will:

 

-  provide a brief overview of the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension project;

 

-  inventory current and planned commuter parking options along the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension; and

 

-  discuss responsibilities and implications for a number of stakeholders involved with the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension.

 

The Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension, currently scheduled to open in late 2017, will be the first subway project completed in the City of Toronto since the opening of the Sheppard Line in 2002. The 8.6 km extension of the University Branch of the Line 1 - Yonge-University Subway will provide an important connection in the northwest of the City, linking the Vaughn Metropolitan Centre and York University.
