Dufferin Station now accessible
Dufferin is the latest station to become accessible with three elevators entering service on Nov. 24. Serving approximately 30,000 daily riders, Dufferin is now the TTC’s 33rd accessible subway/RT station.
As part of the Station Modernization project, Dufferin has been equipped with three elevators. One elevator provides access from street level to concourse level. Two other elevators provide access from the concourse level to the eastbound and westbound platforms.
Dufferin now features an accessible fare gate and farebox, sliding automatic doors and improved signage and lighting. Other key improvements include: two second exits, new wall, ceiling and stair finishes, canopies over Dufferin sidewalks, an expanded bus bay and dedicated bus stop lanes.
Elevator construction is underway at Lawrence West, Woodbine, St Clair West, Ossington and Coxwell stations. The next station scheduled to become accessible is Lawrence West in December.
The TTC’s Easier Access Phase 3 Project will make all the remaining subway/RT stations accessible by 2025. The last station to become elevator-equipped was Pape in October 2013.
The TTC now has a total of 85 elevators in service.
