Yorkdale Bus Terminal is located at 1 Yorkdale Road, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.[1] It occupies the lowest level of an office building[1] adjacent to Yorkdale Shopping Centre and is connected directly to Yorkdale subway station by a pedestrian bridge.[2]

The bus terminal is strategically located, in the middle of what was formerly the City of North York, at Allen Road on the south side Highway 401 the main transportation artery across the Greater Toronto Area. This is ideal for providing GO Transit commuter bus services to points east and west of the city and long-distance intercity coach connections by Ontario Northland[3] and Greyhound.[4] When it opened on October 12, 1979, it was a hub for Gray Coach interurban bus service and Pacific Western Toronto Airport Express service.
