Greenwood Station is a rapid transit station and bus terminal operated by the Toronto Transit Commission in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The station is located at 10 Linnsmore Crescent, which is one block east of Greenwood Avenue and one block north of Danforth Avenue.
Greenwood Station opened with the original Bloor-Danforth subway line on February 26, 1966.
The station architecture is comprised of three levels: street entrance level, an underground concourse level, and platform level.
The main entrance to the station is located on the west side of Linnsmore Crescent just south of Strathmore Boulevard. The main entrance leads directly to the collector's booth and fare gates. Beyond the fare-paid line is the bus terminal, which features 2 bus bays on the west and south sides of the station. Buses serving the station bus terminal enter from Linnsmore Crescent and exit onto Strathmore Boulevard. Connection to the 300 Bloor-Danforth buses can be made at the intersection of Danforth Avenue and Linnsmore Crescent.
The underground concourse has stairs and escalators leading between street entrance level and the subway platforms. The subway platforms are of the typical Bloor-Danforth style, with cream-coloured wall tiles and a black trim.
Just west of the station, there is a wye junction that branches off south from the main line. These tracks lead to Greenwood yard, where trains for the Bloor-Danforth subway line are stored.
In July 2010, the TTC announced plans to add second exits to two subway stations on the Bloor-Danforth line. These exits were recommended after a fire safety audit due the stations only having one primary means of emergency access and egress. Second exit construction at Greenwood Station was scheduled to begin in 2017 and would be combined with the elevator installation from TTC's Easier Access program to minimize impact on passengers and the community. The planned construction would see a new exit only structure built at surface level on Strathmore Boulevard and in order to build the new exit, the TTC planned to expropriate residential land and demolish four homes. As the exit was planned to be constructed within a residential neighbourhood instead of a more populated Danforth Avenue, it triggered public outcry during a community meeting event as many accused the TTC of leaving them in the dark about the "incredibly rushed and secretive process". Afterwards, then TTC Chair Adam Giambrone reassured the crowd that the community suggestions would be considered and that their plans would be reviewed.
After a number of delays, the last Local Working Group Meeting with the community on April 11, 2018 concluded that 1416 Danforth Avenue and 138/140 Monarch Park Avenue would be ranked as the two best sites for the new second exit. None of these proposed sites have been formally accepted or approved by the TTC. However, on July 23, 2018, surveying work was begun around Greenwood Station for the new elevator installation and that the station improvements construction is scheduled to begin in 2021.
