This station seems to be a compromise to avoid putting a station at Lawrence in a low density area, and avoid putting one at York Mills which would be very close to Oriole GO. But it ends up not serving York Mills nor Don Mills Centre very well.

This proposed location is too remote. In my opinion this station makes sense only if it's constructed closer to Don Mills. The Don Mills TTC buses are very popular and a location closer to Don Mills gives better connections to employment along Don Mills to the north and south than the Bond station would have to the Scarsdale Road businesses.

The location for this station is too poor to generate any usage. This station should not be built.

Love the idea of a GO station on Don Mills. Needs to be at Eglinton to connect to new Eglinton Metrolinx or up at Fairview Mall to connect East and west Sheppard corridor to Scarborough. Need to connect Barrie line to Don Mills as well.
