More Than Just Rush Hour Relief
The proposed Ontario Line will connect the city like never before. It will be more than just a subway to alleviate crowding on TTC Line 1 – it will be a link to communities across Toronto. From east to west, north to south, from Ontario Place to the Ontario Science Centre, there’s never been a connection in the heart of the city like this one will be. Getting downtown from previously underserved areas will be a breeze, and there will be more trains arriving at stations more frequently. Think of it as downtown relief when you need it.
As we prepare for population increases in Toronto and across the GTA, Metrolinx will be building vital, fast, reliable transit solutions to serve everyone across the region.
Where Will the Subway Stop?
With fifteen potential stations between Ontario Place and Ontario Science Centre and potential links to GO Transit and TTC Lines 1 and 2, the Ontario Line will open up the city for all residents to live, work and play the way they want to, when they want.
Better Service for All Communities
The Ontario Line will connect previously unconnected communities like Thorncliffe Park and Flemingdon Park, with convenient access to transit so people can get to their jobs faster, do errands more conveniently and explore the city easily.
Convenience Across the Line
As the city expands and develops more housing in the region, more residents will likely be within 10-minutes walking distance to the stops on the Ontario Line, making the commute across the city a better experience overall.
The Ontario Line will likely deliver up to 40 trains per hour, as frequently as every 90 seconds, providing shorter wait times for customers and faster daily commutes. With quicker travel times and more options to move, you’ll have more time for life, family and things that bring you joy.
The completed line could provide relief and possibly reduce crowding by an estimated 14% on the busiest stretch along TTC’s Line 1. Crowding may be reduced at numerous stations across the network including:
- 17% less crowding at Bloor/Yonge Station
- 15% less crowding at Eglinton Station
- 13% less crowding at Union Station
