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

Easy access to the Ontario Line will relieve crowding on the popular 501 Queen and 510 Spadina streetcar routes, with almost 3,800 streetcar riders transferring to and from the Ontario Line every day during the busiest travel hour. Current plans envision maintaining streetcar service in these areas throughout the duration of the project, though there might be times when service is re-routed or reduced to accommodate construction work.

Station entrances have been placed only a few steps away from streetcar stops on both the northeast and southwest corners of the intersection, allowing Ontario Line customers to walk from the subway platform directly to their preferred streetcar stop without having to cross the street.

More than 22,800 residents will be within a 10-minute walk of the new Ontario Line station by 2041. This station is in an area of the city where 7,900 households don’t currently own a car.

We know how important the heritage properties are in this area and we’re committed to featuring heritage attributes in our station designs to respect the important history and character of the neighbourhood. We will be engaging with communities on these plans as we gather more details.

Stats and Facts*:

  • 22,800people in walking distance to the station
  • 7,200 customers will use the station during the busiest travel hour (2,300 getting on and 4,900 getting off the Ontario Line)
  • 3,800 transfers during the busiest travel hour
  • 42,200 jobs in the area

*Forecast for the year 2041
