TTC opens community office for upcoming construction at Bloor-Yonge Station


On Wed., May 17, TTC Chair Jon Burnside, Vice-Chair Joanne De Laurentiis, and Commissioner Fenton Jagdeo joined TTC CEO Rick Leary and Chief Capital Officer, Gary Downie, to officially open the TTC’s Bloor-Yonge Capacity Improvements Project community office at 25 Hayden St.


The community office provides a place for members of the community to meet with TTC project staff, ask questions, and address concerns related to the upcoming expansion and rehabilitation of the TTC’s Bloor-Yonge Subway Station.


"We are getting on with expanding transit across Toronto including the TTC's Bloor-Yonge Station. All governments have worked together to make this important station expansion possible," said Deputy Mayor Jennifer McKelvie. "This community office is an important step forward in this project and we are committed to working with the local community throughout this construction."


“Bloor-Yonge Station is the TTC’s busiest interchange, and we need to expand this station to prepare to meet future capacity needs,” said TTC Chair Jon Burnside. “This community office is a vital part of the project, as it provides local residents and businesses with easy access to the TTC project team, and a space to maintain dialogue around the construction.”


“The opening of this office marks the first step in important improvements to Bloor-Yonge Station and TTC service through the area,” said TTC CEO Rick Leary. “We know construction can be challenging, and the support of the local community is invaluable to this project. I encourage local residents and businesses to come out, meet the project team, and provide any feedback on this project to the TTC.”


In December 2022, the federal, provincial and municipal governments announced joint funding of up to $1.5 billion for the expansion and rehabilitation of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC)’s Bloor-Yonge Subway Station.


The funding will allow the TTC to expand and rehabilitate the existing subway station to improve efficiency and capacity and reduce overcrowding during rush hours. Work will include the construction of a second platform on Line 2 for eastbound service, an expansion of the Line 1 northbound and southbound platforms, new elevators, escalators and stairs, and construction of a new accessible entrance and exit on Bloor St. E. Once complete, this project will increase the station’s capacity and accessibility.


The community office is located at 25 Hayden St., directly south of Bloor-Yonge Station. Those who wish to visit are encouraged to book an appointment by emailing blooryongeproject@ttc.caor calling 416-472-2524.
