Donlands Station is a rapid transit stop and bus terminal owned and operated by the TTC, located at 990 Danforth Ave., although the on-street location is really 1 block north of Danforth.
The entrance/bus terminal is very small; it consists of a small square structure. Passengers enter from the street on the north side. Doors open to the bus bays on the west and south sides. Buses enter the station from Donlands at the south side and go around the building in a clockwise direction, back out onto Donlands. A staircase leads down into the mezzanine, which heads south before splitting into staircases to the westbound and eastbound platforms.
Donlands is not a bus station. It does not receive much passenger flow because it is served by two infrequent bus routes, and therefore there are no shops in the mezzanine. The entrance and bus terminal is also very small compared to other stations because of this, and the layout of the entire station is not designed for large crowds.
Donlands opened with the first phase of the Bloor-Danforth subway. It has not changed since its opening.
Directly east of the station the tracks split for access to Greenwood Yard. Diesel work trains are held at Donlands before they enter the yard, so the roof at the end of the eastbound platform is black from the smoke.
