York Mills Station

York Mills is a station on the Yonge-University Spadina line of the subway system in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located at 4015 Yonge Street at Wilson Avenue/York Mills Road. It was opened in 1973, in what was then the Borough of North York, and replaced Eglinton as the northern terminus of the Yonge line on a temporary basis. One year later, the subway was extended to Finch.

The old York Mills station was also a GO Transit terminal, but today GO buses use their own terminal, off Yonge Street, just north of York Mills Road.

Nearby landmarks include Hoggs Hollow and York Mills Park, York Mills Centre (and Lenovo’s Canadian headquarters), Don Valley Golf Course, and the former Canadian Military College.

The line passes under the Don River West Branch at this point, with a passage at one end of the station actually extending under the small river. The original plan was for a station and a railway bridge over the river to be built above ground, but local residents objected and the underground layout was substituted. Consequently, trains approach the station from both directions on a steep downgrade.
