Keele Station is the newest TTC subway station to become accessible and the elevators are now open for customer use. Two new elevators connect the main entrance to the eastbound and westbound Line 2 subway platforms. Construction began on the Easier Access project at Keele Station in August 2019 and wrapped up in June 2021.

Public Art

Public Art is an important component of major station upgrades. In May, the TTC received 131 submissions for Pre-Qualification for public art at seven subway stations: Bay, Castle Frank, Christie, Donlands, Keele, Lansdowne and Spadina (Line 1). A jury of art professionals is expected to select an artist and concept for Keele Station, in November 2021.
