Travelling into Dupont Station by subway for the first time can make you want to get off your train and look around if you've never seen it before. Entirely finished with small, orange tiles, it is one of the most unique stations on the TTC's subway system because of its pop-art design.

Most of the subway stations in Toronto that were opened for service in the 1950s and 60s are tiled with large ceramic rectangles that randomly vary in colour by station. Dupont's orange colour grabs your attention right away and then you notice the platform's benches growing out of the wall.

The station received press in August 1995 when a collision between two southbound trains killed three women and injured 36 of others with signal failure to blame.

Dupont is one of the few stations on the system which require passengers to obtain a transfer where they pay their fare as buses do not enter the station and proof of payment is required.
