TORONTO — The Toronto Transit Commission opened a 5-mile subway extension of its Line 1 on Dec. 17, the longest such expansion on the system in more than a decade. The Toronto-to-York subway extension has six stations connecting the city with Vaughan.

The extension outside of the city’s limits cost more than $3.2 billion. The new route also serves York University with two stations, The Toronto Star reports. The agency expects those to be some of the busiest stops with an estimated 14 million annual boardings by 2020.

The plan to extend Line 1 toward York University and Vaughan has been talked about since the 1980s. It was jointly funded by the Province of Ontario, the City of Toronto, and the York Region.
