Signs on the Spadina subway station on the Yonge-University-Spadina line point the way to the trains on the crossing Bloor-Danforth line. Spadina Station can be confusing for its long corridors and multi levels and many exits on several streets. I like the train motif on the tiles, to indicate you are heading to the track and not the streetcar bay.

  1. Great idea to put the train motif on the walls. Every bit of extra information is helpful. 😉

  2. Always appreciate anything to make a place like this easier to figure out for the directionally challenged (that’d be me)….

  3. I’ve never noticed that before!

  4. The painting of the train is easily understood – in any language!

  6. A very stylish wall and love the colour scheme! Beautifully presented!

  7. these signs would definitely help me.

    Sydney – City and Suburbs

  9. Neat and colorful.

  10. Never having lived in a area with subways, street cars or the like I find this very interesting.
