St Clair West Station is TTC’s 36th accessible station
With its third elevator in service earlier this month, St Clair West became the TTC’s 36th accessible station and the 19th with elevators on Line 1 Yonge-University.
The station’s three elevators connect the street level to the bus and streetcar transfer area, concourse level and subway platforms levels. The next closest accessible stations to St Clair West are Eglinton West to the north and St George to the south.
Elevator construction continues at Royal York, St Patrick, Dupont, Coxwell and Woodbine stations. Elevators at Woodbine are expected to be in service by the end of the month, while those 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.
The TTC’s Easier Access Phase III Project will make all the remaining subway stations accessible by 2025.
