Construction is continuing on the Toronto Transit Commission’s Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension, and today we take a look at the fourth of the six new stations on the extended Spadina subway line: Pioneer Village Station. The station is situated on Steeles Avenue West east of Jane Street at Northwest Gate on the York University campus, straddling the border between the cities of Toronto and Vaughan.

The main entrance will be situated in Vaughan, across Steeles Avenue from York Stadium. North of the main entrance, in the hydro corridor, there will be a YRT bus terminal and a massive, 1,850-space commuter parking lot, providing a convenient link for those travelling between the Toronto and York Region.
