The city wants to tweak the proposed extension of the north-south Trillium Line to bring trains almost a kilometre closer to fast-growing Riverside South as part of the $3-billion Stage 2 transit program.

The current blueprint has the Trillium Line stopping at a rural area along Bowesville Road, but transit planners have spent weeks exploring the possibility of running the train farther south.

On Wednesday, Mayor Jim Watson and other officials unveiled a plan that would add about 800 metres of LRT track and move the station and park-and-ride lot south to Earl Armstrong Road.
