In late March 2020, the bus loop at Eglinton West Station will be closed for approximately five months for Crosstown construction. Eglinton West Station will remain open, but buses will not be able to access the station’s bus loop.

Temporary covered bus bays will be set up on the north and south sides of Eglinton Avenue West to maintain TTC bus service to and from Eglinton West Station.

There will be significant changes to TTC service.

What to expect

Temporary bus bays will be installed on the north and south sides of Eglinton Avenue West, west of the station:

  • on the north side between Fairleigh Crescent and Park Hill Road for westbound buses
  • on the south side between Atlas Avenue and Winnett Avenue for eastbound buses

Each bus bay will serve up to three buses at a time and will be covered, with curbs installed to ensure pedestrian safety.

Transit riders travelling to and from Eglinton West Station by bus will be required to walk to and from the temporary bus bay or the nearest stop.

When transferring between Line 1 and buses boarding outside Eglinton West Station, customers must provide proof-of-payment. PRESTO customers must tap when entering a subway station and when boarding a vehicle to ensure their proof-of-payment is verified. Customers paying by cash, tickets or tokens must obtain a paper transfer where they paid their fare.

Wheel-Trans

Eglinton West Station will remain open during the bus loop closure, however, due to elevator maintenance at times during this period the station will not be fully accessible. Wheel-Trans will be diverted to Lawrence West and St Clair West stations. Check the accessible alternatives for Eglinton West Station for more information.

Bus route changes

The 63 Ossington bus will terminate at St Clair Avenue West during the closure. A new temporary bus route named 163 Oakwood will provide service north of St Clair Avenue, operating between Ossington Station and Lawrence West Station.
