Davisville (TTC)

|elevators=4 |transferrequired= |platforms=Three-track configuration (one northbound, two southbound) |wheelchair=yes }} Davisville is a station on the Yonge-University-Spadina line of the subway system in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located at 1900 Yonge Street at Chaplin Crescent/Davisville Avenue. It was opened in 1954. Nearby landmarks include the Mount Pleasant Cemetery and the TTC main administrative office building, the Wm. C. McBrien Building.

The station is adjacent to Davisville Yard, which is visible from the trains and platforms. It has a third track with its own platform face, which can be used by trains entering or leaving service at the yard or as an alternate route if one of the running lines is blocked.

It is an open-air station below street level, with separate canopies over each platform; the line continues north in open cut as far as Berwick Avenue, just before the next station.

Just before entering the station from the south, the subway (along with Yonge Street) goes underneath the former Canadian National Railways Belt Line Railway, which has been converted into a pedestrian trail, officially called the "Kay Gardner Beltline Park".
