Raphael Kinney proposed this unusual 31km route:
The intent I had for this route is fairly simple. Run to each and every station on Line 2, and take a photo of each as you go from it's above ground signage. I conceived of the idea around noon and went and did it around 3:30pm the same afternoon. The path taken to each and every station is irrelevant, as long as it is run on pedestrian walk paths above ground with no use of the actual subway system itself. I believe the route I took from East to West to be the shortest route possible. So many people use this system to commute daily and I thought it would be a great adventure to explore the city and the path from a different lens.
The stations included in this route are the following (East to West):
Historical Info: Line 2 Bloor–Danforth is a subway line in the Toronto subway system, operated by the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). It has 31 stations and is 26.2 kilometres (16.3 mi) in length. It opened on February 26, 1966, and extensions at both ends were completed in 1968 and again in 1980.
The line runs primarily a few metres north of Bloor Street from its western terminus at Kipling Avenue to the Prince Edward Viaduct east of Castle Frank Road, after which the street continues as Danforth Avenue. Just east of Main Street, the line begins to deviate northeast from Danforth Avenue and runs grade-separated until its eastern terminus, slightly east of Kennedy Road on Eglinton Avenue.
I think I’ll do this soon this looks awesome great route!
Would love to see it! Routes like this that have some kind of story to them are always super exciting and interesting!
