Wellesley Station Second Exits/Entrances Construction Update

Wellesley Station will be getting two second exits/automatic entrances to improve customer safety and convenience. TTC is coordinating with local developers to build integrated second exits and automatic entrances within the new condominium developments at 17 Dundonald Street (open as of July 27, 2020) and at 587 Yonge Street (ongoing). The completion date and official opening of these second entrances/exits is generally dependent on the condominium construction. Closer to this time, TTC construction crews will re-enter to install the PRESTO fare line equipment, other electrical/communication systems and the station finishes. The underground tunnel connection (located underneath Dundonald Street connecting the second exits to Wellesley Station) was completed by TTC in Fall 2016.

Easier Access Program 

TTC’s Easier Access Program will make subway stations accessible to everyone. The elevators at Wellesley Station were put into service on July 22, 2020. Wellesley Station is the 47th accessible station on the system.

The project includes the following station improvements:

  • Two (2) elevators to access southbound and northbound platforms
  • Improved signage including way finding
  • Security cameras along accessible path
