Transit Over Time

A History of Toronto’s Subway System

The Toronto Subway has changed quite a lot over the years and while some might argue that it hasn’t changed enough recently I wanted to showcase exactly how much growth the system has had since it opened in 1954. This website includes every major addition that has been added since opening and also showcases the various different trains that accompany the time period.

This project is also open source and you can check it out the code over on my GitHub!

This is interactive, give it a shot! Too small over here? Head over to the main website instead.

All of the train illustrations are based off of schematics sourced from Transit Toronto.
