Castle Frank Station is a rapid transit station and bus terminal operated by the Toronto Transit Commission in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located at 600 Bloor Street East at the northwest corner of Bloor Street East and Castle Frank Road.
Castle Frank Station opened with the original Bloor-Danforth subway line on February 26, 1966.
The station is comprised of three levels: street entrance and bus terminal level, and underground concourse level, and subway platform level.
The main entrance is accessed by doors which open onto the west side of Castle Frank Road just north of the intersection of Bloor Street East and Castle Frank Road. On the west side of the station is a newly constructed exit-only building. Inside the main entrance, there is the collector's booth and fare gates and beyond the fare-paid line is the station bus terminal. The outdoor sheltered bus terminal features 3 bus bays and stretches westward from the main entrance building. Buses enter and exit from Bloor Street East and operate in a counterclockwise direction inside the station bus loop. Connection to 300 Bloor-Danforth night buses can be made just outside the station at the intersection of Castle Frank Road and Danforth Avenue. Connection to the 365 Parliament night buses can be made one block west of the station at the intersection of Parliament Street and Bloor Street East.
In the underground concourse, stairs and escalators provide access between street level and the subway platforms. The subway platforms are of the typical Bloor-Danforth style, with peach-coloured wall tiles and a red trim.
In the fall of 2008, the TTC began construction on a new second exit at the west-end of the Castle Frank Station bus terminal and was scheduled for completion in January 2010. Strasman Architects Inc. was commissioned to design the new station exit building and the new underground concourse connecting the subway platforms to the exit. This new construction project stemmed from plans to add new second exits to 14 high-priority subway stations on the Bloor-Danforth line. The construction of new second exits were recommended after a fire safety audit due to the stations only having one primary means of emergency access and egress.
