Grab a PRESTO card and join us on a tour of the future Finch West LRT! Toronto Community Benefits Network (TCBN), Osgoode Hall Law School, Duke Heights BIA, and Green Change are coming together to take you on a 90-minute bus ride to provide an overview of the Finch LRT project, promote opportunities for community benefits through its construction, discuss the potential impacts on local communities, and share resident stories. Along the way, we will point out notable landmarks, such as the Finch LRT Maintenance and Storage Facility, which is the site of a proposed community hub and centre for the arts.

The tour will begin at the Champagne Centre, travel along Finch to Humber College, and then make its way back to Osgoode Hall at York University. Bus tours will leave at 12:30pm, 1:00pm and 1:30pm. Bagged lunches will be provided before participants leave the Champagne Centre and refreshments will be served at Osgoode Hall. Bus to drop off at DUKE Heights.
