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.

Customer service representatives will be available to assist customers navigating between the station and the bus bay.

Crossing guards will also be in place during peak periods.

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.
