Eglinton West Station - Eglinton Crosstown construction
Late March 2020 until early September 2020
In late March 2020, the bus loop at Eglinton West Station will be closed for approximately five months for Crosstown construction. Eglinton West Station will remain open, but buses will not be able to access the station’s bus loop.
Temporary covered bus bays will be set up on the north and south sides of Eglinton Avenue West to maintain TTC bus service to and from Eglinton West Station.
There will be significant changes to TTC service.
What to expect
Temporary bus bays will be installed on the north and south sides of Eglinton Avenue West, west of the station:
- on the north side between Fairleigh Crescent and Park Hill Road for westbound buses
- on the south side between Atlas Avenue and Winnett Avenue for eastbound buses
Each bus bay will serve up to three buses at a time and will be covered, with curbs installed to ensure pedestrian safety.
Transit riders travelling to and from Eglinton West Station by bus will be required to walk to and from the temporary bus bay or the nearest stop.
When transferring between Line 1 and buses boarding outside Eglinton West Station, customers must provide proof-of-payment. PRESTO customers must tap when entering a subway station and when boarding a vehicle to ensure their proof-of-payment is verified. Customers paying by cash, tickets or tokens must obtain a paper transfer where they paid their fare.
Eglinton West Station will remain open during the bus loop closure, however, due to elevator maintenance at times during this period the station will not be fully accessible. Wheel-Trans will be diverted to Lawrence West and St Clair West stations. Check the accessible alternatives for Eglinton West Station for more information.
Bus route changes
The 63 Ossington bus will terminate at St Clair Avenue West during the closure. A new temporary bus route named 163 Oakwood will provide service north of St Clair Avenue, operating between Ossington Station and Lawrence West Station.
The 109 Ranee will be diverted to terminate at Lawrence West Station.
The 32D Eglinton West bus will be extended to terminate at Eglington Station.
Signage will be in place and TTC ambassadors will be on-site during the transition period to help transit riders navigate the area.
