Dufferin Station opened its doors in 1966 as part of the brand new Bloor-Danforth Subway line. Only those stations west of Keele and east of Woodbine would open later (1968). Over 25,000 people use the subway platforms at Dufferin Station each day. The Dufferin 29 bus route is the fifth busiest bus route in the system.

Dufferin Station is being modernized to for a barrier-free path to all levels of the station including:

Elevators to access the station concourse and eastbound and westbound platforms
