The Ontario Line - Neighbourhood Updates - North - Pape

map of the Pape station

 

Pape Station will make it easier to get to the vibrant Greektown neighbourhood and its many restaurants, shops and markets. Experiencing the rich culture and hospitality along the Danforth will be more convenient than ever thanks to the connection to Line 2. The station will be within a short 10-minute walk for 12,700 residents and connect people to the 3,700 jobs the area will support by 2041.

Pape Station will open up new travel options for 9,100 riders who will transfer between the Ontario Line and Line 2 during the busiest travel hour. By giving Line 2 riders another way to get downtown, the Ontario Line is expected to reduce crowding at Bloor-Yonge Station by 22 per cent during the busiest travel. It is also expected to reduce crowding on the busiest section of Line 2 by 21 per cent during the busiest travel hour.

By positioning the Ontario Line station out of the street and straddling Line 2, impacts to area traffic during construction will be reduced and customers will have smoother transfers between the lines once the Ontario Line is up and running.

Work is anticipated to begin after financial close for the Northern Civil, Stations and Tunnel procurement package. Due to the complex nature of constructing this interchange station, some work may be advanced as early works.
