Located just steps from transit, shopping and dining, Cowdray Court, near Kennedy Road and Hwy. 401 in Scarborough, is ideally located. Read on to learn just how easy it is to get around.
Highway 401 Is Around The Corner
The Cowdray Court development is located north of highway 401—just two streets north of the Kennedy Road exit, to be exact. This means access to points west or east couldn’t be simpler. Communities to the east, such as Pickering and Ajax, are just a few kilometres away. Travelling west, you are less than 10 minutes by car from the Hwy. 404/Don Valley Parkway interchange and Yonge Street is just 12 minutes away.
Convenient TTC Buses Just Steps Away
Travelling along Sheppard Avenue is a breeze, as the TTC operates three different buses along this east-west stretch. The 385 runs between Don Mills station to the west and Meadowvale Road to the east. The 85 starts at Sheppard-Yonge station and runs as far east as the Rouge Hill GO station. The 985 is an express bus that starts at Don Mills station and travels to either Scarborough Town Centre or Meadowvale Road. Travelling north-south along Kennedy Road is easy too. The 43A runs from Kennedy subway station north to Steeles Avenue, the border between Scarborough and Markham. The 43B connects Kennedy subway station to Scarborough Town Centre via Progress Avenue. Transportation near Cowdray Court is just outside your door!
Rapid Transit Station At Midland Avenue
Another great option for area travellers is Midland station, a TTC rapid transit station on Line 3 Scarborough. This line runs between the Scarborough Town Centre (at McCowan and the 401) to the east to Kennedy subway station (at Kennedy and Eglinton) to the west. It allows you to connect to the Bloor subway line and, therefore, anywhere downtown. The station itself is on Midland Avenue between Ellesmere Road and Progress Avenue, about a four-minute drive from the development. The trains run every 4-5 minutes during rush hours and every 5-6 minutes otherwise.
Major TTC Hub Minutes Away
Scarborough Centre Station, attached to nearby mall Scarborough Town Centre, is anywhere from 25-30 minutes away by bus, depending which route you take and the time of day. Scarborough Centre Station is a major TTC hub, a central meeting point where bus, train, and GO routes fan out across the city in literally every direction. If you have a car, hire a ride, or carpool, this important connection point is even closer, just a 5-minute drive away.
Agincourt GO Station Located Around The Corner
The Agincourt GO Station is conveniently close. Located at 4100 Sheppard Avenue East, it is a 12-minute walk from the Cowdray Court development. The GO’s Stouffville line trains run through this station and take you into the heart of downtown Toronto within minutes. The station is currently being expanded and enhanced for riders, with completion expected in 2021. If you ever need to park, there are 342 spaces available.
Downtown’s Union Station Just Four Stops Away
Thanks to the Agincourt GO station and its popular Stouffville line trains, downtown hub Union Station is just four stops away! This means you can access any point in the city with ease, whether for work or leisure. The ride generally takes between 25 and 30 minutes and costs between $7 and $8. Using a PRESTO card gives you a discount on the fare, but of course paying with cash is also possible.
