St Andrew latest station to become accessible
St Andrew Station became the TTC’s 31st fully accessible subway/rt station in mid-June.
Two new elevators were opened to the public: one elevator provides service from the corner of University Avenue and King Street West to the PATH system and the food court at 145 King St. W. and the TTC concourse. The other elevator provides service from the TTC concourse to the centre platform, serving both north and southbound trains.
St Andrew Station serves nearly 50,000 daily customers. Its elevators entered service on June 20.
TTC elevators now serve 31 of the system’s 69 subway and Scarborough RT stations. These elevators are specially designed for people in wheelchairs, scooters, walkers, with other mobility devices or baby strollers.
The TTC’s elevator installation project (Easier Access Phase 3) is scheduled to make the remaining 38 stations accessible by 2025 with the addition of elevators, easier access fare gates, automatic sliding doors and other modifications.
