Woodbine Station is the TTC’s 37th accessible station
Woodbine became the TTC’s 37th accessible station and the 15th with elevators on Line 2 Bloor-Danforth in late September. Upgrades at the station also include a new second exit/entrance located at northwest corner of Woodbine Avenue and Strathmore Boulevard, which has exits from both subway platforms.
The station’s two elevators connect the street level to the concourse and subway platforms levels. The next closest accessible stations to Woodbine are Pape to the west and Main Street to the east.
Elevator construction continues at Royal York, St Patrick, Dupont and Coxwell stations. Elevators at Coxwell are scheduled for completion by year’s end. With six, new accessible stations on the Line 1 extension entering revenue service on Dec. 17, a total of 43 of 75 stations will be accessible.
Second exits, designed for improved customer convenience and safety, are also being planned for Donlands, Greenwood and Chester Stations in tandem with elevator construction.
The TTC’s Easier Access Phase III Project will make all the remaining subway stations accessible by 2025.
