The Sheppard Avenue Subway - 2002

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 -
