Future state concept

The Ontario Line station at Moss Park will connect a dense and fast-growing area of the city to the subway network. An estimated 7,300 people are expected to use Moss Park station during the busiest travel hour.

A new Ontario Line connection here will help relieve congestion on popular surface routes, like the 75 Sherbourne bus and 501 Queen streetcar, with almost 1,500 customers transferring to and from the Ontario Line every day during the busiest travel hour.

The station will be within a short 10-minute walk for more than 23,600 residents, in an area of the city where 4,100 households don’t currently own a car.

Students attending the George Brown College St. James Campus will have two choices for boarding the Ontario Line – a station in the area of Moss Park or a station in the neighbouring area of Corktown.

After construction, the park area will be restored and returned to the city for programming or redevelopment.
