Ranked: The TTC's 10 cleanest and dirtiest subway stations

Aug 17 2017, 9:05 pm

If you thought Woodbine Station looked a little dirty on your last visit, it’s because it probably was.

In the TTC’s quarterly cleanliness audit of its stations, Woodbine came up as the dirtiest of all the 69 stops on Toronto’s subway lines. It was on the top of a list of 39 stations that failed to reach the 75% cleanliness threshold, most of which were on Line 2. In fact, only St. George station passed when it came to the Bloor-Danforth line.

The cleanest station is Rosedale on line 1, with pretty much all of the Yonge-University line hovering around the passing threshold.


While it may seem like all bad news, it looks like the TTC has improved over the last quarter. It has also drastically improved since it began its audits in 2008, when thresholds were lower and the average score for cleanliness was at just 64%.

So how do the stations rank?
