Old Mill Station is a rapid transit station operated by the Toronto Transit Commission in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located at 2672 Bloor Street West, near the intersection of Old Mill Trail and Bloor Street West.

History

During the early morning hours of December 8, 2000, a fire broke out on a TTC H1 series garbage train. Once the fire was discovered, the train was parked on the eastern viaduct portion of Old Mill Station. Despite the fears of damage caused from the fire, the track was undamaged and the station structure remained sound. The only damage to the station were several broken windows. Subway service resumed later that day with trains bypassing Old Mill Station and the station reopened two days later. There were no fatalities, however, this incident permanently ended the use of subway trains to transport garbage.[1]

Station description

The station architecture is comprised of two levels: street entrance level and platform level.

The only entrance for the station is located at the northeast corner of Old Mill Trail and Bloor Street West. The main entrance features a bus loop at the front doors for connecting to the 66 Prince Edward buses. As the bus loop is located outside of the station fare-paid area, a transfer is required when connecting to buses. The collector's booth and fare-paid line is located just inside the main entrance doors. Inside the fare-paid area of the station concourse, there are stairs and escalators that lead down to the side platforms at platform level.

When Old Mill Station was built, it partially spanned the Humber River Valley. The western half of the platforms were built underground while the eastern half was built on a viaduct that spans the valley. The viaduct portion of the platforms feature floor-to-ceiling glass that provides views of the Humber River Valley and allows natural sunlight into the station.

Connections to the 300 Bloor-Danforth bus can be made at the stops at the intersection of Bloor Street West and Old Mill Trail as they do not enter the station bus loop.
