LRT vehicles can carry more passengers and go faster than streetcars or buses.
Fairbank (formerly Dufferin) Station
Fairbank Station will be an underground station located at the intersection of Dufferin Street and Eglinton Avenue West.
At this location, there will be two entrances:
- the main, fully accessible entrance at the southeast corner of Dufferin and Eglinton; and
- the secondary entrance at the northwest corner of Dufferin and Eglinton.
On-street connections will be provided to TTC buses.
The station will include a plaza at the main entrance. The plaza will incorporate the existing St. Hilda’s Parkette, located at the southeast corner of Eglinton and Dufferin Street.
Retail spaces will be located at street level within the main entrance.
There will be 30 outdoor bicycle parking spaces.
- The station plaza that will be integrated with St. Hilda’s Parkette will incorporate a fountain or a water feature, and will provide equivalent gathering area and seating functions as are currently provided in the existing parkette.
