Travelling diagonally will give customers a ride that is smoother, more comfortable and faster. This also reduces track maintenance, which means less risk of delays due to repairs making for a more reliable service. Due to the depth of the tunnelling through these areas, we expect any impacts will be comparable to the previous plan and that the majority of buildings overhead will not be needed to accommodate construction. Tunnelling deep into the bedrock below the surface and reducing the curvature of the route reduces the potential for vibration and noise and allows us to deliver the Ontario Line in a way that provides faster service while minimizing or avoiding impacts to the built environment.

West - Exhibition

The Ontario Line at Exhibition Station will create a connection to the GO network and bring the subway system closer to many homes and businesses in the growing and vibrant Liberty Village community.

West - King/Bathurst

In the heart of Toronto’s Fashion District, where almost 8,700 households currently don’t own a car, the station at King and Bathurst will offer vital connections between the Ontario Line and the popular 504 King route and the 511 Bathurst route.

West - Queen/Spadina

The station at Queen and Spadina will provide better access to the more than 42,200 jobs the area will accommodate by 2041.
