Doors Open Toronto 2008: Lower Bay Station
TTC's Lower Bay Station opened its doors once again on Saturday, May 24th, 2008, for this year's Doors Open Toronto event. Here is a collection of photos taken at Lower Bay during this event.

Welcome to Your Peek at Bay Lower, Doors Open.
(The following information is taken from the pamphlet given at Lower Bay during Doors Open.)

When the Bloor-Danforth Subway officially opened on February 25th, 1966, Bay Lower was in full use. Alternate trains on the Yonge-University Subway used the "Wye" connection which allowed customers to travel from the Yonge-University Subway to the new Bloor-Danforth Subway without switching trains. The TTC tested this system for a six-month period, and also tested the two separate subway lines for six-months. Following the test period, the Commission decided that two separate subway lines worked best.

Bay Lower Station has been closed to public use since shortly after opening in 1966. However, it is still used as a location for films and commercials, as for training TTC and Emergency Response personnel.
