What we are doing and why?

As part of the TTC’s Easier Access Program, Bay Station will be upgraded with a new elevator to improve accessibility and customer convenience. Construction at Bay Station began August, 2019. Construction is scheduled for completion by the end of 2020.

Easier Access Improvements


  • Barrier-free path from the adjacent development connection (Cumberland Terrace) to the station concourse and platform level.
  • One (1) elevator to access subway platforms from existing concourse
  • New sloped floor, guard rail and automatic doors to Cumberland Terrace connection to meet accessibility standards
  • CCTV – Security cameras along the accessible pathway

What to expect

  • The construction of a single elevator will take place only at the concourse and platform levels of Bay Station. Protective hoarding will be in place.
  • No construction activities are expected at street level except for the delivery of materials and equipment.
  • Most work will take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., with some extensions outside of these hours in order to complete the work as quickly as possible.
  • Noise and vibration associated with construction can be expected with this work. The contractor will work to keep both to a minimum.

Transit Information and Access

  • Access to the station will be maintained throughout construction.
  • No impacts to subway service on Line 2 – Bloor-Danforth

Thank you for your patience as we work to improve transit accessibility and safety at Bay Station.
