The Stations




Bayview is located under the intersection of Sheppard Avenue and Bayview Avenue, in North York. The primary trip generators in the area are Bayview Village, an up-market shopping centre, and a large local branch of the YMCA.

The station is arranged on 3 levels. There are 3 headhouse entrances at street level, one each on the east and west sides of Bayview Avenue, and one to the east at Kenaston Gardens. The entrances at Bayview Avenue serve curbside bus stops outside the fare paid area, and connect to the main fare line in the west concourse, one level below. Of these two, only the entrance on the east side of Bayview (connecting to northbound buses), is accessible. The east entrance features a fare line at street level, and connects (including elevator access) to an intermediate hallway extending out under the street, and isolated from the west concourse.

Both the west and east intermediate levels then connect down to platform level. As with most line 4 stations, Bayview features an island platform. currently sized to hold a 4-car train, but with knockout panels allowing future expansion to 6-car trains. Bayview's knockout panels can be found at the west end of the platform.

Unique Features


Public Artwork

Bayview includes an eye-catching trompe-l'œil art installation titled From Here Right Now, by local artist Panya Clark Espinal (who later designed the art in Downsview Park station). The installation features impressionist black-and-white silhouettes of common objects including a ladder, an apple, a watch and others, set against coloured backgrounds. The images are stretched around corners along walls and floors, such that they are only recognizable from specific vantage points, melting into indistinct squiggles and smears from other angles.
