Ontario LineA new 15.6-km subway line in Toronto that will run from Exhibition Place, through downtown, all the way to the Ontario Science Centre.
- King-Bathurst Station
In the heart of Toronto’s Fashion District, the station at King and Bathurst will create valuable connections between the Ontario Line and the popular 504 King and the 511 Bathurst streetcar routes. Current plans envision maintaining streetcar service in these areas throughout the duration of the project, though there might be times when service is re-routed or reduced to accommodate construction work.
Underground, the station platform is on a diagonal and avoids significant construction impacts to the historic Wheat Sheaf Tavern. Built in 1849, the landmark building with the distinctive mansard roof is widely believed to be the oldest pub in Toronto.

Station entrances have been placed only a few steps away from streetcar stops on both the north and south corners of the intersection, allowing Ontario Line customers to walk from their subway platform directly to their preferred streetcar stop without having to cross the street.
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 and office space within easy reach of transit, while conserving heritage buildings and structures, recognizing the character of this vibrant neighbourhood.
- 27,000 people within walking distance to station
- 5,100 customers will use the station during the busiest travel hour (3,000 getting on and 2,100 getting off the Ontario Line)
- 2,400 transfers during the busiest travel hour
- 24,200 jobs in the area
