Eglinton Crosstown LRT Vehicles Make Their Way to the East End

The Eglinton Crosstown LRT project marked a major milestone with the first light rail vehicles delivered from the maintenance and storage facility on the west end of the LRT route to Toronto’s east end for testing.

Vehicle testing and commissioning will continue to take place between June and December, with a focus on the area between Science Centre Station and Kennedy Station. The testing includes a few phases, including clearance and static testing, ensuring vehicles can pass and clear all poles, signals and other infrastructure along the route and testing the overhead catenary systems.
