South Entrance Progress

Pioneer Village Station is the third to last stop on the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension and is located on Steeles Avenue West between Jane Street and Keele Street. The station, which straddles the border between the City of Toronto and York Region, has two entrances, one on each side of Steeles Avenue West.

The south entrance will be automated and is located on the east side of Northwest Gate at the north end of the new TTC bus terminal. The main entrance sits on the north side of Steeles Avenue West, with paths to the passenger pick-up and drop-off area, a commuter parking lot for 1,850 vehicles and a York Region Transit bus terminal. A TTC power substation is situated between the main subway entrance and the York Region Transit bus terminal.

Travellers passing through the area will see that the station entrance and TTC bus terminal structures are in place. Within the station, all escalators are installed, mechanical and electrical infrastructure is underway, and work on the terrazzo flooring has begun. The substation building, which feeds power to the tracks and the station, is complete and electrical equipment continues to be installed. Track is installed in the station.

The installation of exterior cladding on the south entrance will begin shortly. The north entrance structural steel has been erected and metal decking work is about to start. The TTC bus terminal interior work is underway. Waterproofing the bus terminal roof is ongoing in preparation for the installation of a green roof.

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.
