West Toronto is an area of Toronto.

Contents

Districts

In increasing distance from the City's core:

  • West Queen West - A little more offbeat than its neighbour to the east, this stretch of Queen contains an enormous concentration of galleries and also holds one of the city's best parks and one of very few in the centre of the city.
  • Parkdale - This neighbourhood extends along Queen Street between Dufferin St and Roncesvalles Ave. Formerly known as a rough neighbourhood and centre of the city's crack trade, it is now in transition due to hipsterification creeping westward from Queen street.
  • Roncesvalles Village - an eastern European enclave centered on Roncevalles Ave. south of Dundas St. West.
  • Bloor West Village - Little Ukraine - running from Jane to High Park.
  • Etobicoke
  • Weston
  • Mimico
  • Toronto/Long Branch/Long Branch
  • Lester B. Pearson International Airport

Get in

By Subway

The Bloor-Danforth Subway Line serves High Park with Keele and High Park stations, Bloor West Village with Runnymede and Jane stations and Etobicoke with Old Mill, Royal York, Islington and Kipling stations; all of these stations are on Bloor Street.

Dundas West station is a major interconnection point, with streetcar lines running south to various neighbourhoods, and a 200 meter walk to the Go Transit train station of the same name.

By Streetcar

The 504 King route runs along King Street, through Parkdale's southern edge, and north through Roncesvalles Village to the Dundas West subway station.

The 505 Dundas route serves Little Portugal / Little Brazil and connects to the Dundas West subway station.

The 501 Queen route runs along Queen Street, through Parkdale, and onward along the Queensway and Lakeshore Boulevard West to the villages of Mimico and Long Branch.

By train

Go Transit operates a service primarily aimed at commuters, with all its train lines travelling radially out of Union Station in downtown Toronto. It is a good choice if you want to travel to Union station, or towards one of the outlying suburbs.

Go Transit runs commuter trains on three train lines through West Toronto: the Georgetown line has stops at Bloor (near Dundas West TTC), Weston, and Etobicoke North; the Milton line, which has service in one direction each during morning and evening commtes, stops at Kipling; and the Lakeshore West line stops at Exhibition, Mimico, and Long Branch.
