Dundas West Station is a transfer station located at Dundas St. W. and Bloor St. W. It provides additional service to the Junction Triangle neighbourhood to the east, and the West Bend neighbourhood to the west. Dundas West is a major transit hub with a subway connection to the Bloor-Danforth line, surface connections to the 40 Junction, 168 Symington, 504 King, and 505 Dundas vehicles, and a GO connection to the Georgetown GO line.

The Junction Triangle is a neighbourhood that over the last few decades has experienced a shift away from manufacturing and focused more on the residential neighbourhood. They are a community who recently displayed how tight-knit they were when they banded together to come up with a name for their previously unnamed part of the city. The West Bend neighbourhood is a historic and stable neighbourhood dating back over one hundred years. Despite the age and stability of these neighbourhoods, the density of the area is relatively high and already supports a subway. Density will also soon increase with the construction of Giraffe Condos, proposed for the corner of Bloor and Dorval.

Much of the area around Dundas West station is already built up, but there still is some opportunities for growth available. A recent avenue study noted that the northwest corner of Bloor and Dundas has potential for intensification29. Additionally, the lands on the east side of Dundas north of Bloor are recommended to be rezoned from the current industrial zoning to mixed residential-commercial with a maximum height of approximately six stories. The lands to the south of the Bishop Morrocco secondary school are also expected to be redeveloped into a mid-rise mixed use neighbourhood. Finally, though outside the boundaries of this study, if these changes occur, it is likely that the industrial on the east side of the tracks will also be converted to residential use.

With future development occurring and a major transit transfer point only becoming even larger, Dundas West Station should see a high number of passengers throughout the day.
