The 1966 TTC subway map was a very different beast from today’s map.
For about nine months that year, after the initial Bloor-Danforth line was opened, subway routing went through a “wye” junction pattern which moved through Bay-Yorkville lower station. The routing of these trains resulted in three discrete, but overlapping lines. This routing was abandoned for the routing familiar to riders today, and Bay-Yorkville lower station was closed.
To celebrate the 45th anniversary of this routing (hey, it was special in a way!), each of the 1966-era stations will be rolled out through the remainder of the year. Each station will be available in *black* and, where available, cranberry. Each design will be limited to a strict run of 100 screen printings, after which time the design will be retired.
We start by releasing the Bloor-Yonge 1966 — the one station through which all three lines passed.
