Strengthening the Regional Transit System

As proposed, the Yonge Subway Extension would extend the TTC’s Line 1 subway service 7.4 kilometres from Finch Station into Richmond Hill. Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario are working together to deliver the project, which will strengthen the regional transit system by once again extending subway service outside of Toronto into York Region. The target completion date is 2029-30.

The extension would provide seamless travel for those travelling between York Region and Toronto while reducing travel times, managing traffic congestion and getting more people moving. Most recent plans propose up to six stations, including transit hubs at Richmond Hill Centre and Steeles Avenue that will connect to local bus services.

An updated business case is being prepared and will be presented to the Metrolinx Board in 2020. Teams are using previous work completed in partnership with the City of Toronto, the TTC, York Region and York Region Rapid Transit Corporation to move this project forward as quickly as possible.
