The 3rd draft of Phase IV of my SmarterTracks plan for Scarborough included the following:
- An LRT between Ellesmere GO and UTSC connecting with Scarborough Town Centre, Scarborough Centre, and Rouge Valley/Centenary Hospital
- An elevated rapid transit line [Monorail or HERT (High-capacity elevated rapid transit)] along Lawrence Avenue East and Kingston Road between Lawrence GO and Highway 2 at Sheppard and Kingston Road

Due to much resistance (and some very valid commentary) this 4th draft replaces the elevated rapid transit line an LRT - This revision also adds a bypass track along Ellesmere to allow LRT trains to bypass STC and the Scarborough Centre Subway Station if necessary

The 3rd draft of Phase III of my SmarterTracks plan for Scarborough included the following:
- A subway connecting Scarborough Centre and the Sheppard Subway at Don Mills and Sheppard
- Expansion of the parking facility at McCowan and Sheppard
- A busway along Sheppard Avenue between Scarborough Centre and Highway 2 at Sheppard and Kingston Road
- A Driverless Shuttlebus between the Toronto Zoo and the Sheppard Avenue BRT at Meadowvale and Sheppard

This 4th draft adds the Sheppard BRT between the Scarboorugh Town Centre and the Scarborough Centre Subway Station

SmarterTracks - Phase II - 4th DRAFT (No changes from 3rd draft) - The third draft of Phase II calls for a Markham Road LRT connecting Malvern Centre and Centennial College Progress Campus with Eglinton GO - It also includes a Driverless Shuttlebus connecting Centennial College, the Markham Road LRT, the McCowan Business Precinct, Scarborough Centre, Scarborough Town Centre, the Brimley Industrial Precinct, and Ellesmere GO

SmarterTracks - Phase I - 4th DRAFT (No changes from the 3rd draft) - The third draft reinstated the proposed subway station at Danforth Road and Eglinton Avenue E. - Regardless of whether these stations are ever built or not, I believe they should be included and will show them regardless of what the city actually does end up doing

The 3rd draft also includes the proposed changes to the Crosstown East LRT to accomodate the proposed changes by the university at UTSC
