The Ontario Line - Neighbourhood Updates - Downtown - Osgoode

Two-dimensional map of two future station entrance buildings at Osgoode station and the surrounding area. One building is located on the northeast corner of Queen Street West and University Avenue, and the second building is located on the southwest corner of Queen Street West and Simcoe Street. The map depicts a rough outline of the projected station buildings’ footprints, anticipated station entrance points, permanent property requirements, and streetcar routes and stops.

Future state concept

The Ontario Line will link directly to Line 1 at Osgoode Station, giving customers an important connection to and from the existing subway network.

New station entrances on the northeast and southwest corners of the University Avenue and Queen Street intersection will create needed capacity for an increasing number of subway customers. They’ll also make it easy for customers coming from underground to get to directly to eastbound or westbound streetcar stops without having to cross the wide and busy intersection.

During the busiest travel hour, we expect 12,000 customers will use the new Ontario Line station with an estimated 5,700 people transferring between Line 1 and the Ontario Line during the busiest travel hour.

There will also be another 1,000 transfers to and from the 501 Queen streetcar, giving people even more ways to navigate and explore the city.

The Ontario Line station at Osgoode will be within a short 10-minute walk of more than 16,500 residents, bringing another rapid transit option to a community where 8,700 households don’t currently own a car. It will also connect to more than 110,500 jobs in the area.
