    Still remains in the same state it was in when closed, with all the original signage and wall tiling intact. All the routing information and signs that were in place when it closed are still in place... almost like the concourse has been sealed and frozen in time.

     History
    The original bus concourse that was opened with Eglinton Subway Station back in 1954. It saw service for 50 years, but was closed due to the concrete overhead deteriorating and not being able to support it's own weight, plus the weight of a bus on top of it. The bus concourse was closed to the public, and a new bus concourse was built right next to it in the remains of an old TTC bus division.

     Future Plans
    Will be demolished and a new permanent bus concourse will be built in its place.
