Don Mills Station SmallAccessible.gif consists of a subway station and bus terminal operated by the Toronto Transit Commission in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located at 1700 Sheppard Avenue East, underneath the Fairview Mall parking lot.

Station description

Don Mills Station consists of 3 entrances. The main entrance is on the north side of Sheppard Avenue East, just east of Don Mills Road. At this entrance, there is a small parking lot for TTC commuters, a pick-up/drop-off area, and bike racks. YRT Viva Green and route 90/90B lets off passengers here before heading into the terminal. This ensures that passengers pay a TTC fare. Inside the entrance building, there is a wide flight of stairs and an elevator which span between the 2 levels, and an escalator. The secondary entrance is opposite the main entrance, on the south side of Sheppard Avenue East. It only has a flight of stairs and an elevator, and crosses underneath Sheppard Avenue to meet up with the tunnel from the main entrance just in front of the collector's booth. The automatic entrance is close to the main entrance, and is located outside the lower level entrance to Sears at Fairview Mall. This entrance leads directly into the bus terminal.

The concourse is large and spacious. The collector's booth is on the east side of the main concourse area with an oval opening on top of the subway tracks. The elevator extends into the centre of the platform below, with stairs and an escalator (1 up, 1 down) on either side of the elevator. The passageway that leads to the bus terminal is directly north of the stairs to the subway.

The bus terminal is a large cavern with mall parking and a parking garage built directly on top of the terminal. There are bus platforms encompassing a fair-sized terminal waiting area. There is a bus entrance/exit that leads onto Don Mills Road located just north of Sheppard Avenue East, an entrance which is only accessed from westbound Sheppard Avenue, and an exit through the mall parking lot onto Sheppard Avenue East just opposite to Parkway Forest Drive. Inside the terminal building, there is a newsstand and a YRT/VIVA fare machine. There is another YRT/VIVA fare machine at the eastern end of the bus terminal where the YRT/VIVA buses stop. The stairs from the concourse come up in the south section of the building, with the stairs up to the automatic entrance across from them on the north side.

History

Don Mills Station opened on November 24, 2002 with the opening of the Sheppard Subway. It is currently the eastern terminus of the line. With the opening of this station, many of the bus routes that once served Sheppard Station were rerouted to connect with this station, therefore, a large bus terminal was required.

YRT rerouted its route 90 buses down Don Mills Road to connect with the terminal. In October 2005, it was joined by Viva Green. Both routes loop via Fairview Mall Drive and Sheppard Avenue East to drop off passengers outside the main entrance. Then, they deadhead into the terminal. This ensures passengers pay a TTC fare before entering the fare-paid zone of the station.

The future of Don Mills as a terminus station is secure for the short term. Even before the station opened, there were talks of extending it to Victoria Park Avenue and the eventual plan was to extend it further east to connect with the Scarborough RT at Scarborough Town Centre.

With the announcement of Transit City, the extension will be handled by the Sheppard East LRT. However, the LRT line would not connect with the Scarborough RT at Scarborough Town Centre. Instead, it will terminate at Meadowvale Avenue.
