Info

St. Patrick is a subway station on Line 1 Yonge–University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located under University Avenue at Dundas Street West. Wi-Fi service is available at this station.
The station, which opened in 1963, is named for the nearby St. Patrick's Church. It is one of only two stations in the system to have a tubular shape created by the tunnel boring machine, the other such station being Queen's Park, the next station to the north.
The murder of a schoolgirl here in 1975 prompted the TTC to adopt system-wide safety measures such as the first police patrols on the subway and the installation of emergency telephones and alarms. One of the three cross passages was blocked off, as well as at Queen's Park station, to prevent it being used as a hiding spot for criminals.
