The Ontario Line - Neighbourhood Updates - East - Gerrard

map of the line segment containing Gerrard station

The future Ontario Line station at Gerrard will provide easy transfers to both streetcar and bus routes just steps from station entrances.

An estimated 3,300 people are expected to use Gerrard station during the busiest travel hour, with 2,000 transferring between the Ontario Line and local streetcars and buses. This will make travelling especially easy for the 1,100 households in the area that don’t currently own a car.

A property next to the Gerrard-Carlaw Parkette and dog park is needed to support the construction of a new station at the intersection, but once complete, it will be added to the parkette. Though some space from the existing parkette will be needed to accommodate the new station, there will be approximately 500 square metres of new green space in the reconfigured park when the neighbouring land is factored in.

Stats and Facts*:

  • 11,900 people within walking distance to the station
  • 2,000 transfers during the busiest travel hour
  • 3,300 people will use the station during the busiest travel hour (2,400 getting on and 900 people getting off the Ontario Line)
  • 3,800 jobs in the area

*Forecast for the year 2041
