The Toronto Transit Commission is opening the doors to its Greenwood Shop this Saturday, May 23, as part of Doors Open Toronto. The east-end maintenance facility, which opened in 1965, is where TTC crews repair and overhaul a large portion of the subway fleet.

Visitors will have the opportunity to ride a subway train through the extensive yards and see the heavy machinery used to keep trains in a state of good repair. There will also be a children’s activity table, and burgers and hotdogs available for three dollars, with all proceeds going to the TTC’s United Way campaign.

• Where: Greenwood Shop, 400 Greenwood Ave.
• When: Saturday, May 23, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
• How to get there: Line 2 (Bloor-Danforth) to Greenwood Station, 10-minute walk south on Greenwood Avenue or take any 31 Greenwood bus south and exit at Felstead Avenue.
