As part of the TTC's Easier Access program, which systematically provides enhanced barrier-free accessibility for transit riders and pedestrians at subway stations across the city, Islington Station is slated to be modernized. This will include an entirely new bus terminal and station entrance, featuring plenty of natural light and a more accessible subway station platform.
Islington Station Easier Access improvements will include:
- New Bus Terminal with five bus bays. One bus bay to be designated as a Wheel-Trans stop.
- New Station entrance on the northwest side of Islington Avenue and Aberfoyle Crescent, with ramps for barrier-free accessibility to the concourse level.
- New Underground Bus Terminal Tunnel with retail spaces, connecting the new Bus Terminal to the existing station concourse via one elevator and a set of escalators and staircases.
- One elevator to provide barrier-free accessibility between the existing subway concourse level and platform level of the Station.
- Improved signage and new public art within the Station.

The project is phased, as the station will remain in operation for the duration of construction. Learn more about how we’re making transit more accessible with TTC’s Easier Access program. All TTC Easier Access projects are reviewed by ACAT (Advisory Committee on Accessible Transit).
