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.

East Harbour Station

Just east of the Don River and north of Lake Shore Boulevard East, a station at East Harbour will be an important transfer point, accommodating GO operations, a planned extension of the Broadview streetcar, and Ontario Line service in a corner of the city that is poised for growth.

The future East Harbour transit hub will be a vital connection for customers transferring between the Ontario Line and GO train services. With a shared concourse providing easy access to all the rail services that will serve East Harbour, more customers will be able to transfer from the GO train to the subway network to get to more places. This important connection between the subway network and GO rail services will also help relieve crowding at Union Station by up to 14 per cent – or 14,000 people - during the busiest travel hour.
