Coxwell Station is a rapid transit stop and bus terminal owned and operated by the TTC, located at 1568 Danforth Avenue, although the on-street location of the station is really one street north of Danforth Avenue on Strathmore Boulvard just east of Coxwell Avenue.
The bus terminal at Coxwell is located inside the fare-paid area of the station. Passengers can use the street entrance on the south side of Strathmore Boulevard to access the terminal. The bus terminal is simple, with 4 bus bays stretching around all sides of the building except for the north side. The bus bays on the southeast and southwest side of the building are spares, mainly used by buses unloading passengers.
The mezzanine is a small rectangular area with stairwells or escalators at each corner. In the southeast corner is the escalator for the eastbound platform. In the southwest corner is the stairwell leading down to the eastbound platform. In the northeast corner is the escalator for the westbound platform. In the northwest corner is the stairwell leading to the westbound platform. Along the south side of the mezzanine between the stairwell and escalator for the eastbound platform is an escalator surrounded by two stairwells leading up to the bus terminal and street level. In the centre of the mezzanine level is a Gateway Newsstand store.
The subway platforms are of the typical Bloor-Danforth style, and are not extremely interesting. On the eastbound platform between the stairwell and escalator is a small office used by TTC supervisors and subway operators. Coxwell Station is the stop on the Bloor-Danforth line where most drivers start and end their shifts, unless they have to pick their train up or drop it off at Greenwood Yard.
Coxwell Station opened with the original Bloor-Danforth subway line in February 1966.
