One of Toronto's least-used subway stations just got a breathtaking new entrance
A TTC subway station just got a second entrance and it's now open for use.
The centrepiece is the bright, floral mural by Markham artist Katharine Harvey.
Located across from the main entrance, the new one features two PRESTO-enabled fare gates.
The new addition is sleek and modern, with wood panelling and large windows.
Chester Station’s second exit/entrance is now open! This exit/entrance is located across from the main entrance and features two PRESTO-enabled fare gates. We'd like to thank our neighbours for their patience during the construction. For more info, visit: https://t.co/gBXE2MCMZO pic.twitter.com/9TkPrEFXgx— TTC Customer Service (@TTChelps) April 27, 2021
Chester station became the 48th accessible TTC station in September 2020, as two new elevators that connect the street to the subway platform are available for customer use from the main entrance.
As part of the station upgrade work, a public art component was integrated into Chester Station. Florae by @kitkatharvey1 is installed next to the new elevators and above the main entrance doors.

The TTC also mentions on their website that some remaining project-related activities will continue at Chester station.
