The TTC’s 511 Spadina streetcars (new and old) will now run from Spadina station to Union Station and the 509 Harbourfront streetcars are back in business.
Alternate Caption: 20140821. Pigeons use the subway too.
If you are taking the Yonge line, enter from the east doors (farthest) and if you are taking the University line, enter from the west doors (closest). What concerns me is if you want to go into the underground PATH, you must come through the west doors or you will be met by a bank of 17 turnstiles where once you could just walk through.
Apologies for suggesting the entire platform was narrow. Will this platform change from white to grey over time from subway train grime?
The new platform services trains heading northbound on the Yonge line. Note: a) the wayfinding signage above the train (similar to stations to the north), b) the ceiling panels that snap in/out of place allowing easy access for servicing, c) the exposed concrete floors and d) the matte wall tiles with the occasion glossy ones thrown in.
John Martins-Manteiga’s Mean City documents some of Toronto’s finest post-war era modernist architecture. Although not mentioned in the book, I think that Old Mill station is also a fine specimen of modernism with its half elevated and half underground station design and beautiful views of the Humber River.
This design provides a larger space to wait indoors for your bus but the single set of sliding doors and the narrow staircase will act as bottlenecks during rush hour. What do you think of the design?
