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.

Gerrard Station

The future Ontario Line station at Gerrard will provide easy transfers to both streetcar and bus routes just steps from station entrances. An estimated 3,300 people are expected to use Gerrard station during the busiest travel hour, with 2,000 transferring between the Ontario Line and local streetcars and buses. This will make travelling especially easy for the 1,100 households in the area that don’t currently own a car.

A property next to the Gerrard-Carlaw Parkette and dog park is needed to support the construction of a new station at the intersection, but once complete, it will be added to the parkette. Though some space from the existing parkette will be needed to accommodate the new station, there will be approximately 500 square metres of new green space in the reconfigured park when the neighbouring land is factored in.

Infrastructure Ontario has also proposed a new Transit-Oriented Community for this site, which will bring a vibrant, mixed-use community to the area that will put more housing, jobs, retail, a grocery store and other amenities within easy reach of transit.
