Dufferin Station is a rapid transit stop owned and operated by the TTC, located at 1126 Bloor Street West. Buses serving this station stop in front of the two street entrances located on the west and east sides of Dufferin Street just north of Bloor Street West.

Station description

This station does not have a bus terminal. Instead passenger board buses at the station entrances on the west and east sides of Dufferin Street. The east side entrance leads down to a underground walkway that crosses under Dufferin Street and connects to the mezzanine level.

The mezzanine is a small rectangular space with stairwells at each corner. The southeast stairwell leads up to the west side of Dufferin Street, thesouthwest stairwell leads down to the eastbound platform, the northeast corner has a walkway leading to the east side of Dufferin Street, and the northwest stairwell leads to the westbound platform. Along the east side of the mezzanine between the underground walkway and the stairwell leading to the west side of Dufferin Street is a Gateway Newsstand store.

Dufferin Station has two side platforms with the track in between, typical Bloor-Danforth stations. The Bloor-Danforth line also had a wall colour scheme that cycled along the line. At Dufferin, the two colours used are a pale green for the majority of walls and black trim along the top at platform level. The station name and some other signage engraved in the wall are painted to match the trim, and the station name engraved in the trim is painted to match the wall. Made accessible in January 2015 with a new elevator from train level to road level

History

Dufferin Station opened with the original Bloor-Danforth subway line in February 1966.

Modernization

Dufferin station is undergoing a modernization which includes new finishes, larger street entrances, reconfigured mezzanine level, new elevators, as well as a new second entrance/exit off of nearby Russett Avenue. The project was initially advertised to start in late 2009 and finish in 2012. However the TTC began work in 2010 and is now expected to be completed in 2014.

The main entrance on the west side of Dufferin Street will be enlarged and incorporate a waiting area for buses. The entrance will also have a new main stairway to the fares concourse. The concourse will be modified to improve flow, and elevators will be added to connect the street level, platform level, and concourse level. Construction of a sidewalk canopy on the east side of Dufferin Street was completed by the end of December 2011.

The station will feature upgraded ceiling finishes and wall finishes in certain areas. An art component incorporating digitally manipulated photos of the surrounding area will be integrated into the walls. The terrazzo flooring will be upgraded or replaced. New signage will be implemented throughout the station. Plans for the final finishes, artwork, and green roof were approved by The Commission on July 9, 2009.[1]
