Islington Station is a rapid transit station operated by the Toronto Transit Commission in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located at 1226 Islington Avenue at the northwest corner of Bloor Street West and Islington Avenue.

History

In order to provide subway service to the suburbs of Metropolitan Toronto, construction on a westward extension from Keele Street to Islington Street and an eastward extension from Woodbine Avenue to Warden Avenue began soon after the original Bloor-Danforth line opened on February 26, 1966. After the westward extension was completed, Islington Station opened in 1968 and provided new subway service to the City of Etobicoke. In addition, being the western subway terminus, Islington Station provided connections to Gray Coach buses as well as bus service to Pearson Airport.

As the westward and eastward extensions of the Bloor-Danforth line were being built at the same time, both Islington Station and Warden Station share very similar terminus station architectural features. A notable similarity is the bus terminal building which has separated bus platform bays where each bay is accessed by a flight of stairs. Islington Station was the western terminus of the Bloor-Danforth line until in 1980 when the subway was further extended west to Kipling Avenue.

Station description

The station architecture is comprised of three levels: street entrance level, an underground concourse and collector's booth level, and platform level.

The two main entrances for the station are located on the east and west sides of Islington Avenue, just north of Bloor Street West. A third entrance is situated in the parking lot directly north of the station. The collector's booth and concourse area is located one floor down. Inside the fare-paid area of the concourse, there are stairs that provide access to the separated bus platform bays for the TTC routes that serve the station. A separate bus platform on the south-side of the main bus platform building serves the MiWay bus routes. This station is not accessible, however, there are escalators that connect between the street, concourse and subway platform levels. Only stairs connect between the concourse and the bus platform levels.

Connections to the 300 Bloor-Danforth and 337 Islington buses can be made at the bus stops at the intersection of Bloor Street West and Islington Avenue. All other routes stop inside the bus terminal.
