Ride the Rocket from Downsview to Vaughan

  • Thursday, February 16, 2023
  • 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
  • Downsview Park station, northbound platform at the DWA
  • 30



Tour the subway stations on Line 1 from Downsview Park to Vaughan Metropolitan Centre. Six "new" stations were added to Line 1 in 2017.  They span 8.6 km into York Region. This was one of the most ambitious public transit undertakings in North America in recent decades (soon to be eclipsed by Ontario Line).

The project was completed by local architects, renowned artists and international studios. It is one of "Toronto's most impressive and integrated collections of contemporary art and architecture". (Artworx.TO)

We recommend coming by subway to Downsview Park Station, 25 Vitti Street, North York.

Walk Details: This "walk" will be primarily indoors since we'll be riding on the subway, but we will go outside at each of the subway stations for short periods, so please dress for the weather.  You'll need a valid Presto card to participate as we will be entering and exiting 6 times.  Your Presto pass gives you up to 2 hours of unlimited entrances.

Note: Much of the tour is on the subway and in the new subway stations, so masks are strongly recommended. Here are the Club's COVID-19 Policies and Guidelines.

For more information:  Contact the event convenor Mary Moore (through the Member Directory). If you register and can't make it, please cancel and free up a space on the walk for another Probus member on the wait list.
