Union Station is the premier gateway to Toronto and the busiest, multimodal passenger transportation hub in Canada, serving a quarter-million people daily. The Station is connected to numerous modes of transportation. Security at Union Station is in place to protect you and all visitors.

Construction on this iconic landmark began in 1914 amidst a materials shortage during World War I, but the station didn’t officially open until 1927. Since then, Union Station has welcomed waves of immigrants to Toronto, survived a major fire, and endured more than 80 years of wear and tear.

In 1975, Parks Canada designated Union Station a National Historic Site because it was, and still is, the country’s finest example of a classical beaux-arts railway station. Union Station is the largest of the great urban train stations built during the early 20th century.

Since acquiring Union Station in 2000, the City continues to own, manage and improve the station and is currently leading a multi-year revitalization that will make Union Station, one of Toronto’s crown jewels, spectacular again.
