TTC to open Greenwood Complex this Saturday in support of the United Way

This Sat., Sept 16, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., the TTC will open the doors to its Greenwood Shop in support of its annual United Way Campaign. The east-end maintenance facility, which opened in 1965, is where TTC crews repair and overhaul a large portion of the subway fleet.


The family-friendly event will allow visitors to go behind the scenes and participate in guided tours of the TTC’s subway maintenance and infrastructure facilities. Guests can enjoy a variety of additional activities including a silent auction, BBQ, and a virtual subway simulator. TTC work cars will also be on display.


“I want to say a big thank you to the employees who generously organize and contribute to the annual TTC United Way campaign,” said Mayor Olivia Chow. “I encourage everyone to come out this Saturday to Greenwood Shop, as it promises to be great fun for a great cause.”


“This open house is an excellent way for members of the public to get an exclusive look at the inner workings of the TTC, while supporting a very worthy cause,” said TTC Chair Jamaal Myers. “Thank you to the employees who have organized this event, and who will be out there on Saturday supporting the United Way.”


“We at the TTC are so proud and excited to showcase our Greenwood Complex and some of the incredible work required to keep the subway running for our customers,” said TTC CEO Rick Leary. “This is the first event of many in our 2023 United Way campaign, and I want to thank the employees and pensioners who work so hard to make these fundraisers so special.”


TTC’s Greenwood Complex is located at 400 Greenwood Ave. Bus and Wheel-Trans shuttles will run between Coxwell Station and the event. Admission at the door is $5 for adults and $2 for children 12 and under (cash only). All proceeds will go to United Way Greater Toronto.


The next event in support of the United Way will be a garage sale at TTC’s Danforth Division on Sat., Sept. 23.


Last year, TTC employees raised over $630,000 for the United Way of Greater Toronto through various initiatives, including a Halloween event at Bay Lower Station, an Open House at Hillcrest Complex, and staff events and donations.
