Nov. 14, 2018

The Sheppard subway line opens, running east from Yonge Street to Don Mills Road - Former Toronto mayor Mel Lastman was among a crowd of dignitaries to board trains on the new five-stop line, Toronto’s first since 1966 - Unlike previous lines, all five stations – Sheppard-Yonge, Bayview, Bessarion, Leslie, and Don Mills – were accessible from the time they opened - It also garnered attention for the artwork displayed prominently in each station - thestar.com

"The University Subway was ahead of its time, in many ways - Conceived as a relief-line to the Yonge Subway, it did not start performing that function until the early 1980s, when congestion on the Yonge Subway started to get severe - Toronto’s downtown also started to grow to the west, and other developments as the Skydome and the new Theatre District on King Street have boosted ridership"
