TTC’s Pape station to close June 15-26 for modernization work

May 21, 2013

The Toronto Transit Commission is continuing the modernization of the Pape subway station. In an effort to complete the work in a timely manner, Pape Station will be closed to TTC customers from Saturday, June 15 to Wednesday, June 26, re-opening at the start of service on June 27.

During the closure, subway trains will not stop at Pape Station. Buses that normally serve the station will divert to nearby stations as follows:

– 72 Pape: buses will operate to Broadview Station via Danforth Ave. Buses will then travel north on Broadview Ave., east on Mortimer Ave., then south on Pape Ave and back to route.
– 81 Thornciffe Park: buses will operate to and from Donlands Station, via Pape Ave. and Danforth Ave.
– 25 Don Mills: buses will operate to and from Donlands Station, via Donlands Ave.

Customers who normally start their subway trip at Pape Station can board an 81 Thorncliffe Park bus across the street from the Pape Station entrance and ride to Donlands Station, or board a 72 Pape bus at the northwest corner of Danforth Avenue and Pape Ave., and ride to Broadview Station. Customers who normally end their trip at Pape Station can exit the train at Broadview Station and take a 72 Pape bus to Pape Ave., or exit at Donlands Station and take an 81 Thorncliffe Park bus to Pape Ave.

The TTC conducted an online survey asking customers and the community if they favoured speeding up the completion of construction by closing the station for either 12 consecutive days or six weekends or to keep the station open and continue with the current construction schedule. The majority of respondents wanted the station closed to speed up construction, and more than 52 per cent favoured the 12-day closure.

During the closure, floors, stairs, finishes, ceilings and the new bus waiting area will be worked on. Elevators, bike parking and landscaping will be completed in September. And by December, the second exit will be completed.

For more information about the closure, bus diversions and construction, visit pape.ttc.ca.
