St Patrick Station now providing
accessible access to TTC subway



St Patrick Station is now the 45th of the TTC’s 75 stations to provide accessible access to the subway system.

The new, accessible entrance is at 480 University Avenue on the northwest corner of University Avenue and Dundas Street West. Elevators connect the street to the concourse level and the subway platforms. This entrance also includes weather-protected stairs.

At a later date, the TTC plans to install Barbara Todd’s Many Little Plans, as part of the project to upgrade the station.

The TTC is continuing its “Easier Access” program to install elevators in 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. It intends to introduce accessible access to the subway at two more stations — Dupont and Royal York — in 2019.


Jane Jacobs, Toronto’s revered urban activist, advised “Make many little plans” as a key ingredient for creating a healthy urban environment. Many Little Plans will consist of more than 400 ceramic tiles in the alcoves of the subway platform. Every tile will portray the silhouette of a person, each with his or her unique pattern. Photographs of local residents and the station’s users, taken with full participation of the subjects, will appear throughout the artwork. Many Little Plans will be a compendium of ages, genders, ethnicities and walks of life, reminding viewers of the vibrant diversity of Toronto’s urban population.
