How are we improving Coxwell Station?
The TTC is committed to making its services accessible in order to better meet the needs of seniors and people with disabilities in the City of Toronto. At Coxwell Station, as well as the changes to make the station fully accessible, there are some general improvements that need to be made. We call this “State of Good Repair” work. All this work is being combined into one project to reduce disruption.
City on the Move - Young Artists in Transit
Find out about the innovative project where local youth worked with a professional artist to design a mural that is on display on the construction hoarding at Coxwell Station. The mural will be on display for the duration of construction, scheduled for completion in 2017.
When the work is finished, Coxwell Station users will find a barrier-free path to all levels of the station including:
Two elevators to access eastbound and westbound platforms
Two accessible fare gates
Three automatic sliding doors to enter station
Improved signage and wayfinding
CCTV – Security Cameras
All of these modifications were reviewed by ACAT.
“State of Good Repair” improvements include:
Re-paving of bus loop
Upgrading station power
Enhanced lighting with new light standards in bus loop
Replacement of fence on the west side of the property
New landscape design adjacent to bus loop
We know that with any big construction project, the surrounding neighbourhood is affected. We know it won’t always be easy, but we are committed to ensuring the station is as safe as possible:
As we work on this station, we are committed to:
Communicating with you early and often
Staging construction to shorten length of construction and minimize disruption to the community
Maintaining vehicular traffic on Strathmore Boulevard
Putting up construction barriers to separate construction from pedestrian and vehicular traffic
Complying with the City noise by-laws and provide advance notice to community if night work is required
Providing a designated TTC contact for all public inquiries and communication
- Fall 2014 Construction start
- January 2015 Commence Elevator E2 on north side of Strathmore Blvd
- Fall 2015 Commence Elevator 1 (within station) and Bus Roadway closure (14 months)

About Coxwell Station
Coxwell Station opened its doors in 1966 as part of the brand new Bloor-Danforth Subway line. Only those stations west of Keele and east of Woodbine would open later (1968). Over 16,000 people use the subway platforms at Coxwell Station each day. Two bus routes run out of Coxwell Station – the 22 Coxwell and the 70 O’Connor routes, both of which run accessible buses with bike racks.
