This Saturday, October 28, you can grab a sneak peek into three of the new subway stations on the Line 1 Yonge - University extension to Vaughan.

From 1 until 5 p.m., you can visit:

  • Pioneer Village Station, 2800 Steeles Avenue West;
  • Highway 407 Station, 7332 Jane Street; and
  • Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Station, 3150 Highway 7 West.

During these open houses, you can tour the stations, meet with the construction teams and chat with staff from PRESTO, York Region Transit, Brampton Transit and TTC about service changes and other project partners including the TTC’s wireless provider, BAI Canada and the City of Vaughan.

Architects and artists who designed and built the stations will be on hand, including Will Alsop (Pioneer Village station architect), David Pearl (artist for Highway 407 Station) and Paul Raff (artist for Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Station).

At Pioneer Village Station, a barbeque lunch supports the United Way of Toronto and York Region.

During these open houses, the elevators and escalators are not operating, so the lower levels are not accessible for visitors who can’t use stairs.

The subway extension opens Sunday, December 17.
