Located in the south end of the eclectic Kensington Market is Augusta Ave + Dundas St W Station.
Deployed on July 6, 2016, this high traffic station in Toronto’s favourite bohemian community – Kensington Market – has accumulated over 14,500 rides this year! Designated a National Historic Site in 2005, Kensington Market is one of Toronto’s oldest and most diverse neighbourhoods. Known as a local hotspot for vintage shops, quaint cafés, specialty grocers and, of course, trendy bars, Kensington Market is one destination that never goes out of style. With its graffiti lined streets, old victorian homes and charming shops, it’s no wonder that Kensington draws locals and tourists year round.
