map of Sheppard & McCowan Station

As the northern terminus of the three-stop Scarborough Subway Extension, this new station will bring direct access to rapid transit to customers who live and work north of Highway 401. 

A new station in this area means that customers in the northern parts of Scarborough will have to spend less time on buses to get downtown. For drivers in this area, there will be fewer buses on the road as these buses will be able to terminate at Sheppard and McCowan instead of Scarborough Centre.

This station is being designed to ultimately provide an interchange with an extension of the proposed Sheppard Subway (Line 4).

The new station will feature a TTC bus terminal with passenger pick-up and drop-off facilities.

Station Facts*

  • 13,230 customers expected to use the station during busiest hour

  • 12,000 transfers expected during busiest hour

  • 5,995 jobs expected in the area

*Forecast for 2041. Includes proposed Line 4 forecasting.


Construction of the tunnel launch shaft is underway at Sheppard Avenue and McCowan Road. This site will serve at the entrance point for the tunnel boring machine. It will then be converted into a station site for the stations, rail and systems contract.
