York University Busway opens

November 20, 2009

Friday marked the official start of a new rapid transit service from Toronto's Downsview subway station to York University. The Busway is part of a 2-phase approach to improve transit options to the university. The first phase provides 6 kilometres of bus-only lanes, connecting the northern terminus of the Spadina subway line at Downsview with York. The second phase is the Toronto-York Spadina subway extension to the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre, which will include a station at the university and is expected to be complete by the end of 2015.
