The TTC’s Easier Access Program is making subway stations accessible by 2025. Construction at Islington Station is planned to begin in 2023. In addition to the Easier Access enhancements, which will systematically renovate Islington Station for universal accessibility and enhanced pedestrian access, Islington Station is slated to be completely rebuilt, with an entirely new bus terminal featuring plenty of natural light and more accessible platforms, and elevators.
Islington Station Easier Access improvements will include:
- Three new elevators which will connect customers between the Passenger Pick Up/Drop Off area (PPUDO), concourse level and subway platform at the station.
- Improved signage and wayfinding.
- A station redevelopment which will involve constructing a temporary accessible bus terminal and a new permanent accessible bus terminal once completed.

The project is phased, as the station will remain in operation for the duration of construction. A preliminary schedule aims to start work on the first phase in 2023 with completion planned for 2026.
