There's been much talk lately about Toronto's transit system including the Scarborough Subway two stop expansion to nowhere, Eglinton's new CrossTown LRT, and Union Station's $1 billion dollar transformation. Last week, Victoria Park station won the Toronto Urban Design Award for its renovated bus terminal. The winning design included a bike storage facility, a widened and elevated pedestrian walkway, a 5,000 square foot green roof and an improved accessibility initiative. Victoria Park station opened in 1968, one of only two subway stations in Scarborough, divided into two fair systems; York and East York in Zone one; Scarborough, North York and Etobicoke in Zone two. After a construction delay, the anticipated Victoria Park renovation was finally completed in 2010.
