Living with Transit: Our Convenient Connection to College Station

If there’s one thing that’s important to any urban dweller, it’s their proximity to transit. In Toronto we have streetcars, buses, and subways, and having easy access to them is key. The fastest and most preferred transit method is of course the subway, and being close to a subway station is something a lot of Torontonians think about when they’re choosing a neighbourhood to live in. We don’t exactly want to rub it in, but here at Aura we’re pretty lucky to not only have College Station right beside our building, but we don’t even have to walk outside to access it!

College Station isn’t just like any old TTC station though, it’s a part of College Park which is home to a number of stores, restaurants, offices, a connection to our PATH system, a food court, a Metro grocery store, and of course a connection to our building. It’s great and super convenient for picking something up or grabbing a bite if you’re on your way to or from work.

The station itself opened in 1954 on the Yonge-University-Spadina Line. We’re lucky that the TTC’s gradual deployment of Wi-Fi included College early on in the process - a definite bonus! If you’re in the subway station, you might notice two murals: one depicting the Toronto Maple Leafs and the other the Montreal Canadiens. The artwork is named “Hockey Knights in Canada”, and we’re sure you can guess why.

Is it obvious yet that College is the best TTC station to be connected to?
