Yonge North Subway Extension

Extending Line 1 subway service nearly 8 km north from Finch Station to Richmond Hill.

Bridge Station

Placed between the Highway 7 and Highway 407 corridors, Bridge Station will be the transit hub in the northern part of the Yonge North Subway Extension. The station will link the two halves of the Richmond Hill Centre/Langstaff Gateway urban growth centre that are divided by the overpasses, barriers and ramps that make up the highway infrastructure. This area is poised to become a bustling centre in York Region, and transit will be critical in keeping people moving as the community grows.

The station will offer fast and simple connections to York Region Transit and regional GO buses that travel on the major roadways in the area, as buses won’t have to divert far off their routes in order to connect to the subway. Bridge Station will also provide an easy transfer to the Richmond Hill GO train because it will be connected to the existing Langstaff GO Station.

Transferring between buses or trains will be simple and quick for riders because the station is planned to be built on the surface along the existing railway corridor, meaning there will be no need for lengthy descents to underground platforms. This will make it easier for people to transfer to other transit lines to get where they need to go.
