Yorkdale Station is a rapid transit station operated by the Toronto Transit Commission in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located in the centre median of Allen Road south of Yorkdale Road. The station is named for the nearby Yorkdale Shopping Centre.

Station description

The main entrance is located under Allen Road on the onramp to Highway 401. An elevated walkway to the west connects passengers to the Yorkdale GO Bus Terminal and the Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Passengers can connect to the 47 Lansdowne bus at an on-street bus stop on Yorkdale Road. The secondary entrance is located on Ranee Avenue and is where passengers can connect to the 109 Ranee bus.

There are escalators and stairs to platform level at either end of the station. The island platform has a vaulted glass roof which is rounded at both ends and is supported by stainless steel pillars along the platform. Stainless steel and glass partially enclosed waiting areas are provided and have wayfinding signage along the top.

When the stationed opened, the 570 foot platform roof featured an art piece by Michael Hayden called "Arc en Ciel".[1] The installation comprised of neon light tubes along the roof arches illuminated in the colours of the visible spectrum. They flashed in sequence with the arrivals and departures of the trains. Due to a lack of funds to repair the piece, it was removed in the early 1990s.

The trainway walls are bare concrete on the interior and is curved to meet the platform roof. There are windows along the walls which mimic those used on the Hawker Siddeley subway cars. Where there are no windows, there are advertisement panels or the station name in black Univers font. The exterior of these walls are stainless steel, further evoking the look of the subway cars.
