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.

Osgoode Station

The Ontario Line will link directly to Line 1 at Osgoode Station, giving customers an important connection to and from the existing subway network.

New station entrances on the northeast and southwest corners of the University Avenue and Queen Street intersection will create needed capacity for an increasing number of subway customers. They’ll also make it easy for customers coming from underground to get directly to eastbound or westbound streetcar stops without having to cross the wide and busy intersection.
