The Future of Thornhill

An 8.1 kilometre ‘Dedicated Rapidway’ (the
Rapidway’) is scheduled to open in City of
Vaughan in December 2019, with service provided
along Centre Street, Bathurst Street and Highway
7, as well as connections to Richmond Hill Centre
Terminal (Yonge Street) and the TTC Vaughan
Metropolitan Centre Subway Station (Highway 7
and Jane Street). The Rapidway will include a new
Disera-Promenade Viva Station stop, which is colocated
on the Site with the Promenade Terminal. The Rapidway is intended to
provide safer left turns for drivers, with dedicated
left-turn signals at intersections and the ability
to make protected U-turns.

Metrolinx is currently working in partnership with
City of Toronto, TTC, YRT and the York Region Rapid
Transit Corporation to conduct detailed planning,
design and engineering work on the Yonge North
Subway Extension which will involve the eastern
segment of TTC Subway Line 1 (Yonge-University)
extending 7.4 kilometres north from TTC Finch
Subway Station to Richmond Hill Centre Terminal.
Five new subway stations will be added as part of
the extension, including Clark Station located at
Yonge Street and Clark Avenue, approximately 2
kilometres east of the Site.
