Dufferin Station will be closed to the public on Saturday, November 22 and Sunday, November 23, with subway trains not stopping at the station so the Toronto Transit Commission can complete work on the Dufferin Station modernization project, making the station the 33rd TTC subway station to be fully accessible. The station will re-open on Monday, November 24, at 6 a.m.
Subway trains will bypass Dufferin Station, but shuttle buses will operate on Bloor St. W., between Lansdowne and Ossington stations for customer convenience. The 29 Dufferin and 402 Parkdale community bus will not be affected by the closure.
Work this weekend will include finishes on new stairs, ceilings and floors, and testing the three new elevators that, along with an accessible fare gate and automatic sliding doors, will make Dufferin Station accessible to all customers.
Over the last four years, Dufferin Station has undergone a significant transformation, including expansion of the station building and indoor waiting area, second exits from both platforms, a new laneway entrance on the west side, a new staircase, modern wall, ceiling, floor and stair finishes, new windows for more natural light, bicycle parking, canopies over the sidewalks, a green roof and new public art.
TTC senior managers will join Councillor Ana Bailao to greet customers at the station entrance on Wednesday, November 26 from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m.
The TTC thanks customers, the local community and businesses for their patience during construction.
