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.

Queen-Spadina Station

The station at Queen and Spadina will relieve crowding on the popular 501 Queen and 510 Spadina 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.

Station entrances have been placed only a few steps away from streetcar stops on both the northeast and southwest corners of the intersection, allowing Ontario Line customers to walk from the 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 retail space for businesses within easy reach of transit.
