Exhibition Station serves one of the most popular destinations for sports, concerts, and trade shows in the country, not to mention family attractions like the CNE. 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.

The above-ground shared concourse between the Ontario Line and Lakeshore West GO services will make transferring between the two quick and seamless for the approximately 6,300 people who will make that switch every day during the busiest travel hour.

Giving customers another way to transfer between GO Transit’s regional rail services and the local subway system will take pressure off of Union Station, the country’s busiest transit hub. This new interchange will help reduce crowding at Union by about 14 per cent – or 14,000 fewer people – during rush hour.

The Ontario Line will also be just steps away from the 511 Bathurst and 509 Harbourfront streetcars, giving customers even more ways to navigate and explore the city.

The Ontario Line station at Exhibition will be within a short 10-minute walk of more than 12,100 residents, bringing rapid transit to the growing and underserved neighbourhoods of Liberty Village and Parkdale where more than 2,700 households don’t own a car. It will also connect to more than 17,600 jobs in the area by 2041.

A portal will be constructed on the north side of the existing GO Corridor for the beginning of the Ontario Line tunnels.

Tail tracks, west of Exhibition, will provide space for the storage of Ontario Line vehicles and protect for a future extension of the line.
