Christie is a station on the Bloor–Danforth line of the subway system in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located on the east side of Christie Street just north of Bloor Street West, and opened in 1966 as part of the original segment of the subway line.
Christie Station opened in 1966, as part of the first phase of the Bloor-Danforth line.
The station was damaged in 1976 when a fire was set on board a late-evening train. Nobody was hurt, but four cars of the train were destroyed and part of the station's platform area, including the tiled wall, suffered severe damage. During the repair parts of the trim were replaced with a different colour; red-brown instead of the original green tile.
Christie Street is named after the baker William Mellis Christie, the namesake of the Mr. Christie brand of cookies, now owned by Mondelēz/Kraft, and so the reference to the station as "Mr. Christie Station" has some validity.
A paper transfer is required to connect between the subway and buses which use a curbside stop at this station.
