With less than two weeks to go until the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension opens, the TTC is set to begin installing updated maps throughout the subway that feature the sparkling new line.
You might have already noticed that wayfinding signage in the subway has been updated to reflect the new terminus of the western side of Line 1.

The updates will be more noticeable in the days ahead as new signage goes up throughout the system. Today, TTC spokesperson Brad Ross tweeted out samples of the new maps, which will soon grace subway cars and station platforms.

The existing TTC maps foreground the arrival of the new extension with an outlined section between Sheppard West and Vaughan, but it won’t be long before the new stops will actually light up on the Rocket trains’ fancy above-door maps.
The newly revamped maps also feature highlight transit hubs like UP Express connections and GO stations as well as commuter necessities, such as washrooms and accessible stations.
