Cummer Station

Metrolinx is moving planning and design work forward for Cummer Station in case it can be added to the Yonge North Subway Extension.

If built, Cummer Station would serve the Newtonbrook area of North York, putting the subway within walking distance for 5,700 people and 2,200 jobs.

The station would have connections to local TTC bus lines that serve communities along the Cummer Avenue and Drewry Avenue corridor.

The placement of any station buildings, bus terminals or other structures would be confirmed through further planning and design.
