The Ontario Line - Neighbourhood Updates - North - Science Centre

map of the line segment containing the Science Center

 

A new transit hub at the Science Centre Station will connect the Ontario Line to the Eglinton Crosstown LRT and frequent local and express bus services from the north.

The station is elevated, located at the northeast side of Don Mills Road. This positioning will allow for better integration with the future TTC bus terminal at this site and potential future extension of the Ontario Line to the north.

Customers will be able to access both the Eglinton Crosstown and the Ontario Line from entrances at both the southwest and northeast corners of Don Mills & Eglinton. Underground passages will provide an alternative to crossing the intersection at street level.

For customers transferring from the Ontario Line to the Eglinton Crosstown, escalators and elevators will provide accessible, indoor connections between the two lines as well as access to the bus terminal.

The new Science Centre transit hub will connect people across the transit network with new opportunities for employment – an estimated 9,200 jobs will be within walking distance of the station by 2041. About 3,600 people will transfer between the Ontario Line and the Eglinton Crosstown LRT at the station during the busiest travel hour, with another 1,400 transfers to and from local buses.

Tail tracks, north of the stations, will provide space for the storage of vehicles and protect for future expansion. Work is anticipated to begin after financial close for the Northern Civil, Stations and Tunnel procurement package.
