The Heart of the City—Yonge-Dundas

Yonge-Dundas is the very heart of downtown Toronto, where the major arterials of Yonge Street and Dundas St meet here, and the resulting intersection may be the city's busiest (at least for pedestrians). Virtually everyone living in Toronto passes through here at some point.

Yet more than just the physical heart, the Yonge-Dundas area also represents the commercial and political heart of the city. Shop at the Eaton Center and relax at Dundas Square; take in a show at the Mirvish Theatre, or visit two magnificent City Halls (one classic, one modern).

There may be crowds, but they're all here for a reason. The heart of Toronto holds an important place in the hearts of Torontonians and visitors alike.


By subway

The Yonge subway line runs under Yonge Street from Front St to North York, with stations at Queen St, Dundas St, College St, and Wellesley St. The Dundas station puts you in the middle of the district with connections to the Eaton Centre and Dundas Square.

The University-Spadina subway line runs under University Avenue along the western edge of the district. The district is served by two stations: Osgoode (at Queen St) and St Patrick (at Dundas St).

The Bloor-Danforth line stops just north of the district at the intersection of Yonge St and Bloor St.

By streetcar

The 501 streetcar line runs along Queen street at the south end of the district.
