People on subway

Ontario Line

A new 15.6-km subway line in Toronto that will run from Exhibition Place, through downtown, all the way to the Ontario Science Centre.

Cosburn Station

The Ontario Line will help bring more customers to Pape Village and East York thanks to a new station at Cosburn and Pape.

By positioning Cosburn Station west of the street, fewer of the buried utilities will need to be relocated, including the recently upgraded watermain. While the property requirements for this approach are comparable to what would have been needed if the station were built directly under the street, an added benefit is that there will be fewer impacts to area traffic.
