Description:
Yorkdale is a station on the Yonge–University–Spadina line of the subway system in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located on William R. Allen Road just south of Highway 401.

Connections are available to GO Transit buses (as well as Greyhound and airport shuttles) at Yorkdale Bus Terminal at the south east corner. 1144 parking spaces are also available for commuters.

Yorkdale was designed by Arthur Erickson. The station is above ground, and also above street level. It has two tracks, northbound and southbound.

The interior walls of the station at platform level are unfinished concrete, but artistically cast, and curve over the tracks to form the ceiling.

Handrails on stairs leading to the platform are backlit....
