Interior of Highway 407 Station

Highway 407 Station is the second last stop on the new Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension. Located on the west side of Jane Street, just south of Highway 407, this intermodal station will include an 18-bay bus terminal for GO and York Region Transit, a 550-space commuter parking lot, and a connection for the future Highway 407 Transitway.

From the air, the completed station and bus terminal will resemble a boomerang made of aluminum. A coloured glass art panel on the east side of the station box will allow sunlight to cascade into the station to track level.

Station History

Prior to station construction, a bridge was constructed over Black Creek which is the permanent access to Highway 407 Station and the adjacent provincial development lands. Black Creek was realigned in 2010 to make room for the station. Read more about moving Black Creek in the Summer 2013 project newsletter.

Also of significance is the fact that Highway 407 Station was the launch site for tunnelling operations north of Steeles Avenue West.

Station Construction Update

The Highway 407 Station structure is nearly complete.  Mechanical and electrical installation and architectural finishing work is under way inside the station. Construction of both wings of the bus terminal is also in progress. Later this year, the escalator systems, some of the longest continuous escalator runs in the TTC system, will be installed. By the end of 2015, the main finishes should be well under way, including terrazzo flooring, and the exterior glazing on the bus terminal, which features a bird-friendly glass wall.

The TYSSE project is an 8.6-kilometre extension of the Toronto Transit Commission’s Yonge-University-Spadina subway line from its present terminus at Downsview Station (to be renamed Sheppard West Station when the extension is complete) to the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Station at Highway 7. It will have six new stations. The expansion of the subway will bring the line into The Regional Municipality of York. The new line is expected to open by the end of 2017.
