Escalator to the Yorkdale Station platform
Easier Access Program

Yorkdale station

Project Update

The elevator at Yorkdale Station was placed into service on December 22, 2021 making it TTC’s 55th accessible station in the network. The elevator now provides customers with an accessible path from the subway platform to street level, as well as a barrier-free path to the GO Terminal. The path includes a covered ramp between street level and concourse level, and an elevator from concourse level to the subway platform.

Other works at the station are still underway, including replacement of the two escalators, bike parking, main entrance and façade expansion and development, skylights and public art which are scheduled for completion later this year.

Completion of this elevator reconfirms TTC commitment to accessibility with three stations completed in 2021 and six additional stations planned for tender in Q4 2021 / Q1 2022. All stations are planned to be accessible by 2025.

Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
