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.

Pape Station

Pape Station will make it easier to get to the vibrant Greektown neighbourhood and its many restaurants, shops and markets. Experiencing the rich culture and hospitality along the Danforth will be more convenient than ever thanks to the connection to Line 2.

By giving Line 2 riders another way to get downtown, the Ontario Line is expected to reduce crowding at Bloor-Yonge Station by 22 per cent during the busiest travel hour. It is also expected to reduce crowding on the busiest section of Line 2 by 21 per cent during the busiest travel hour.

By positioning the Ontario Line station out of the street and straddling Line 2, impacts to area traffic during construction will be reduced and customers will have smoother transfers between the lines once the Ontario Line is up and running.
