6. Spadina Subway Extension

The Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension (TYSSE) is a six-station, 8.6-km extension of the Line 1 Yonge-University from the current Downsview Station (to be renamed Sheppard West Station), northwest through York University, and north into York Region.

The TYSSE will be the first subway expansion crossing the municipal boundary of Toronto. The official groundbreaking took place in 2009. The extension is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2017. The extension has generated thousands of jobs during its construction, which is about 70 per cent complete. Here are the six stations:

Vaughan Metropolitan Centre: will be located north of Highway 7 to the west side of the relocated Millway Avenue. The terminal station will be a multi-modal transportation hub with an off-street passenger-pick-up-and-drop-off area, and connections to York Region Transit (YRT) Bus Terminal and to the Viva Bus Rapidway, which will run in the centre of Highway 7.

Highway 407: will be located west of Jane Street and south of Highway 407, west of Black Creek. Includes: inter-regional bus terminal, 600-space commuter lot, connection to future Highway 407 Transitway.

Pioneer Village: will be located diagonally below Steeles Avenue West. Includes: TTC and YRT bus terminals, 1,900-space commuter lot.

York University: will be located at York University, crossing underneath Ian Macdonald Boulevard in the heart of the Keele Campus below the Harry W. Arthurs Common.
