Toronto Union Station

History

Union Station is the primary railway station and intercity transportation facility in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located on Front Street West, on the south side of the block bounded by Bay Street and York Street in downtown Toronto. The station building is owned by the City of Toronto, while the train shed and trackage is owned by the commuter rail operator GO Transit. Union Station has been designated a National Historic Site of Canada since 1975,and a Heritage Railway Station since 1989.

Its central position in Canada’s busiest inter-city rail service area, "The Corridor", as well as being the central hub of GO Transit’s commuter rail service, makes Union Station the busiest transportation facility in Canada, serving over 250,000 passengers a day. More than half of all Canadian intercity passengers and 91% of all commuter train passengers travel through Union Station.

Challenge Awaits

While it doesn’t have extreme crime nor pollution, managing Union Station in Cities Skylines will be challenging for many. Union Station will give you 17 fully fonctional platforms to work with. Arrange, use, manage railroads as you see it fit. Usual Two Way Station track on front, feature 4 stops instead of two, in order to utilise unusual scale of the Station.

Features of the Toronto Union

* Features 15+2 base platforms (You must use South extension to get 2 additional platforms)
* Since South and Main Station are separate assets, you can use either one or both as local station. This will lower or increase your outside traffic depending your city planning.
* Moat covers will deliver tourists and provide beautification bonus.
* Since the game doesn’t have underground trams, this missing feature is replaced with 4 metro stops, 2 located in front and 1 on each wing.
* South Station has parking spaces on front.
* It uses important amount of electricity, although other stats are slighty above the standard station, so it won’t cripple your economy.
