Are you interested in transit? Have you been following the discussion on Toronto’s motherlode transit plan with great interest? Well, now you have the opportunity to actually visit a TTC station!
This weekend is Doors Open 2017 in Toronto, an annual program in which residents are able to explore 150 different historical, cultural, and social buildings. Every year the Toronto Transit Commission welcomes Torontonians into various aspects of their agency. This year, the TTC is opening the doors of Downsview Park and York University stations before they open in December as part of the Line 1 extension.
Visitors will be able to take a tour of the stations, and learn how they were built and how they operate. Artists Panya Clark Espinal and Jason Bruges Studio will be on hand to talk about the design of the project.
On May 27, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., head to one of these two stations. They are only open the one day. Downsview station is fully-accessible but York University station is not. For more information, click here.
