Scarborough Centre is a station on the Scarborough Rapid Transit (SRT) line of the subway system in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located north of Ellesmere Road between Brimley and McCowan Roads, just south of Highway 401.

It was opened in 1985, and replaced a transit access to the Scarborough Town Centre shopping mall. Other nearby landmarks include the Scarborough Civic Centre (the former city hall), Albert Campbell Square, the Canada Centre government offices, and the Scarborough YMCA.

The station is on three levels; the Scarborough RT is on the upper level, the mezzanine, and passenger entry from the mall and nearby buildings is on the middle level, and the bus terminal is at ground level. There is elevator access for the TTC services.

Subway extension

The Toronto Transit Commission had planned to extend the Sheppard line south-east from its current terminus at Don Mills to Scarborough Centre. The 190 Rocket Express bus currently links the two stations, making limited stops along Sheppard Avenue. In March 2007, however, the TTC dropped this plan when it announced its Transit City proposal to build the Sheppard East LRT Line.
