The annual Jane’s Walk takes place on the first weekend of May, and has grown to over 200 cities and 1,500 walks around the world. Over the past few years, the Eglinton Crosstown LRT Community Relations Team has both participated in and led Jane’s Walks in communities along Eglinton.

Building on the interest and success of our past walks, the Community Relations Team is presenting an expanded five part Jane’s Walk program in 2017 that will give participants a complete view of the 15 underground stations for the Eglinton Crosstown LRT. The program will include five walks, all focused on the planning, design and construction of the LRT project, and also exploring the challenges of building a major transit line through the centre of the city.

Each two-hour walk will cover approximately two kilometres of the alignment.
