Construction starting at Yorkdale Station

Project timeline: February 13, 2018 to end of 2020

Work description

Construction to make Yorkdale Station accessible will begin this month and continue until end of 2020. Work will include installation of a new elevator, accessible fare gates, redesign of the main entrance with a glass canopy and sheltered bike parking.

TTC service

The station will remain open at all times however there will be a “no-parking” restriction in front of the main entrance. Temporary stopping will be permitted however due to the construction activity there will be limited space. Customers are encouraged to use the Ranee Avenue entrance (PRESTO only) if they are being picked up or dropped off. The entrance is located immediately south of Yorkdale Road.

Work hours

The majority of the work will be completed between Monday and Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Escalator out of service - end of October 2019 to Summer 2021

Escalator will be out of service to accommodate construction of the new elevators.

We thank you for your patience as we work to make this station accessible.
