|Lansdowne station - inside and outside|
The Lansdowne subway station is located on the Bloor / Danforth line of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). It was opened to the public in 1966 and serves approximately 14,000 a day.
The Lansdowne subway station is located on
Lansdowne Avenue just north of Bloor Street and is on the edge of the strip. Bloordale Village
Lansdowne is considered a high risk station that requires attention from the Police vice squad... especially around the area of the Coffee Time coffee shop across the street where there were obvious drug deals going on, prostitutes handing about and vandals. In one month alone a few years ago, 94 people were changed with selling crack.
Residents in the area are hopeful that 2 new police stations, # 11 and 14 divisions that will run along the railroad tracks west of Lansdowne, will serve as a deterrent to crime. Having more police visible should reduce the drug and prostitution trade at Bloor and Lansdowne. The TTC property on Lansdowne still remains empty as there is a legal dispute between GE and TTC over who should be doing the clean up of the soil so as of now the new police stations are still put on hold.
