Eglinton West Subway


Eglinton West Subway station is on the Yonge – University-Spadina line of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC).  It was opened to the public in 1978 and serves about 20,000 people a day.  It is situated in the neighbourhood of Little Jamaica.
 
Back in the mid 90’s Eglinton West subway station was to become an interchange station but due to the Harris government, the Eglinton subway project was put to a halt and the partial tunnel was refilled.  Up until recently the idea of Eglinton west becoming a interchange had been re-addressed once again in the Eglinton Crosstown LRT (Light rail line) proposal.  This too has been put on hold by the new mayor elect Rob Ford.  (see LRT lines) on my blog for more details.
