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.

Science Centre Station

A new transit hub at the Science Centre Station will connect the Ontario Line to the Eglinton Crosstown LRT and frequent local and express bus services from the north.

The station is elevated, located at the northeast side of Don Mills Road. This positioning will allow for better integration with the future TTC bus terminal at this site and potential future extension of the Ontario Line to the north.

Customers will be able to access both the Eglinton Crosstown and the Ontario Line from entrances at both the southwest and northeast corners of Don Mills and Eglinton. Underground passages will provide an alternative to crossing the intersection at street level.

For customers transferring from the Ontario Line to the Eglinton Crosstown, escalators and elevators will provide accessible, indoor connections between the two lines as well as access to the bus terminal.

Tail tracks, north of the stations, will provide space for the storage of vehicles and protect for future expansion.
