Disappearing act

The CN Tower is a 10-minute jaunt from St. Andrew subway station. But a new TTC map posted at the station doesn’t show that.

The CN Tower is a 10-minute jaunt from St. Andrew subway station. But a new TTC map posted at the station doesn’t show that.

According to the map, the Toronto landmark doesn’t exist. Neither do the Rogers Centre or city hall.

The maps have been raising eyebrows since they started to appear three weeks ago.

The St. Andrew edition also has several glaring typos. The Gardiner Expressway is listed as the “Gardner,” and the Toronto Eaton Centre is incorrectly dubbed the “Eaton’s Centre.”

“It’s unacceptable,” said Mitchell Kosny, director of the school of urban and regional planning at Ryerson University. “I wouldn’t even accept work from my students — I wouldn’t even look at it — if it had those types of errors.”

The maps will be taken down and redone, said transit chair Adam Giambrone.

“Part of the issue is there is no one who oversees map creation ... This time, I’ll see the maps before they go up,” he said.

The maps cost the city about $2,000.
