Pioneer Village Station is a rapid transit stop owned and operated by the Toronto Transit Commission and is located at Steeles Avenue West and Northwest Gate in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. There is a parking lot for 1,850 vehicles in the hydro corridor just north of the station.

The design of Steeles West Station was awarded in October 2008 to the design team lead by The Spadina Group Associates (TSGA) working with Richard Stevens Architects and Alsop Architects.[1] Preparations for construction of the station began at the end of January 2011.

Station description

The main entrance is located north of Steeles Avenue, which separates Vaughan and Toronto. Just north of this entrance is a bus terminal for York Region Transit buses along with a passenger pick-up and drop-off area. Further north is the parking lot and is connected to Steeles Avenue by a new street. A secondary entrance located southeast of Steeles Avenue and Northwest Gate is within the City of Toronto. Diagonal to this entrance is the TTC bus terminal. The roof of the entrances and YRT bus terminal will be a cool roof, while the TTC bus terminal will have a green roof.

The station features two concourses, one at each end. Both have stairs and escalators to the surface and platform level. Both also have separate elevators to access the surface or platform level. The northwest concourse has a fare gate which passengers cross to access the platforms, however the southeast entrance shares the fare paid area with the TTC bus terminal.

Trains are served by an island platform, over which is a high roof supported by concrete pillars. Walls of the station box are also in concrete. At roughly the centre of the platform is a skylight cone allowing light to shine through.

Flooring throughout the station is of grey terrazzo with brick-coloured fill. The exterior and interior walls of the entrances are clad in weathering steel panels with matching lower porcelain enamel panels. The walls in the concourse and bus terminal are clad in blue-grey porcelain enamel panels, and ceilings feature gold coloured acoustic panels. The bus terminal soffit features weathering steel panels.

Steeles West Station features a public art piece called "LightSpell" developed by a studio led by Jan and Tim Edler. It is located above the platform and consists of an array of 62 light elements. Each element can produce all letters of the alphabet, as well as special characters and numerals from 0 to 9.[2]
