"Easier Access" to Keele and Runnymede stations
Open house, December 11



You can learn more about upcoming TTC projects to install elevators at Keele and Runnymede station next Tuesday, December 11, as part of its **”Easier Access” program .

With “Easier Access”, the TTC intends to install elevators in all its subway stations, making the subway system accessible for everyone. The program supports the government of Ontario’s Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. The provincial legislation commits the TTC to achieving a barrier-free transit system by 2025. This week, it completed work to provide accessible access in St Patrick Station. It also intends to introduce accessible access to the subway at two more stations — Dupont and Royal York — in 2019.


The TTC expects to start building in 2019 of a barrier-free path from the main entrance to all levels of Keele Station by installing:

  • Two elevators to access eastbound and westbound platforms;
  • PRESTO-enabled accessible fare gates (already available in the station);
  • Automatic sliding station entry doors;
  • Better signage; and
  • Close-circuit television (CCTV) security cameras in the accessible pathway.

Since “late November”, crews started building a barrier-free path from the main entrance to all levels of Runnymede Station by installing:

  • three elevators to access the east- and westbound platforms;
  • automatic sliding station-entry doors (on Kennedy Avenue); and
  • better signs and closed-circuit television (CCTV) security cameras along the accessible pathway.

During construction of this project, crews are also repairing the masonry and upgrading the fire alarms.
