The TTC’s Easier Access Program makes stations accessible with the addition of new elevators. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2021.

Easier Access improvements include

  • Barrier-free path from the main entrance to the platform level of the station
  • Two elevators to access eastbound and westbound platforms
  • Automatic sliding station entry doors
  • Improved signage and CCTV – Security cameras along the accessible pathway

What to expect

  • The majority of construction for the new elevators will take place in the bus loop. Protective hoarding will be in place.
  • The bus loop will be closed for approximately 6 months in 2020 (TBD) in order to upgrade/repave the bus roadway, bus platforms and to complete some preliminary underground work. During this time, TTC riders will board buses on-street or at a High Park station. A detailed transit service plan will be provided closer to the time of the closure with updated signage in place.
  • The construction vehicle access will be from Keele Street.
  • Station bike parking will be relocated and maintained.
  • For more information about the project, please view the December 2018 Public Open House Presentation (pdf).

Work hours

  • The majority of work will take place between Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., with some extensions outside of these hours in order to complete the work as quickly as possible.
  • Noise, dust and vibration associated with construction can be expected with this work. Efforts will be made to keep levels to a minimum.

Thank you for your support as we build accessible transit for Toronto.
