Accessible elevator construction

The Toronto Transit Commission has an ongoing program to improve subway station accessibility. The Interactive TTC Subway Map highlights the stations that are now equipped with accessible features such as elevators and barrier-free entrances. For more information on future accessible stations, visit Easier Access.

Ossington Station Easier Access

  • Elevators at Ossington Station will be periodically out of service, for testing. Ossington Station is scheduled to be accessible, with two elevators, by the end of 2016.

North York Centre Station - northbound elevator

The northbound elevator at North York Centre Station will be out of service from November 17 until the middle of January due to PRESTO construction. During this time you will need to do the following:

  • Northbound platform to fares concourse: Travel northbound to Finch Station. When you get to Finch Station, board a southbound train to North York Centre Station and take the elevator from the southbound platform to the concourse level.
  • North York Centre Station fares concourse to northbound platform: Travel southbound to Sheppard-Yonge Station. When you get to Sheppard-Yonge, take a northbound train to your destination. 

Regular maintenance of TTC elevators and escalators keeps them working reliably and safely. To complete this important work, specific units will need to be out of service from time to time.

Following is a list of planned maintenance. Please note: Locations and schedules are subject to change without notice.
