St. George Station SmallAccessible.gif is a rapid transit station operated by the Toronto Transit Commission in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located at 139 St. George Street, which is situated north of the intersection of St. George Street and Bloor Street West. Some nearby landmarks that this rapid transit station serves include the Bata Shoe Museum, The Royal Conservatory of Music, Koerner Hall, and University of Toronto Varsity Centre.

Station description

The station architecture is comprised of four levels: street entrance level, an underground concourse level, platform level for Line 1 Yonge-University, and platform level for Line 2 Bloor-Danforth.

The main entrance to the station is located on the west side of Bedford Road just north of Bloor Street West. There is a connection to 26 Dupont buses from the station bus terminal at this entrance. The secondary automatic entrances are located on the east side of St. George Street north of Bloor Street West and inside the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education building located at 252 Bloor Street West between St. George Street and Bedford Road. The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education building automatic entrance is closed after 6:00pm on weekdays and during the weekends. The bus terminal at the Bedford Road entrance features two bus bays. Buses enter the terminal from a roadway off Prince Arthur Avenue and exit onto Bedford Road. Connection to the 300 Bloor-Danforth night buses can be made at the intersection of Bedford Road or St. George Street at Bloor Street West.

The concourse level is situated below street entrance level and can only be accessed from the Bedford Road main entrance. It features the collector's booth and stairs that lead to the Line 1 and Line 2 platforms. Platforms for both lines are on different levels and can be accessed by stairs, escalators, or elevators.

In 1993, Paul Arthur, a graphic designer, designed a new type of wayfinding signage that featured the image of a crest with a dragon and differentiated the two subway lines operated by the Toronto Transit Commission at that time. It was hoped that this pilot implementation at St. George Station would lead to the retrofitting of the entire subway network with this new design. Despite receiving somewhat high public approval over the old design, the TTC was unable to approve the $8 million price tag to retrofit the entire system.[1] Only a few of these signs remain to this date in the form of a pole sign outside the Bedford Road entrance and on the wall tile trim visible from the subway platforms.
