  • Tunnel construction begins at Bloor and Dundas


Construction crews are now at work delivering on the promise of a faster and easier connection between Bloor GO/UP Station and Dundas West TTC Station.  

The contract for construction to build the pedestrian tunnel was awarded late last year and the team is now hard at work. 

Once complete, the Bloor-TTC connection will provide a safe and customer-friendly connection between GO Transit, UP Express and TTC services (subway, streetcar, and bus). 

The link will reduce the distance between the two stations from 500 to 270 metres. It will shorten a walk that can take up to 8 minutes, depending on weather and traffic, to a short 2 minutes in a tunnel, below street level.

This will make it easier and safer for users with mobility challenges or baggage in hand – whether it’s a laptop for work, groceries picked-up on the way home, or luggage for a trip through Pearson Airport.  

Currently, about 600 transfers per day are made between Dundas West TTC Station, and Bloor GO Station – a number that is sure to grow in the future.
