A turboshaft is a passageway allowing the turbolift to move through key sections of the ship.

Kirk, Spock and McCoy were forced to climb the turboshaft of the USS Enterprise-A, while attempting to escape Sybok, as the turbolifts were down. Despite the fact that Kirk and McCoy began climbing, Spock opted for using his jet boots to expedite the journey. (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)

Emergency bulkheads were installed in turboshafts and could be initiated to stop a turbolift from falling or to restrict access for unwanted passengers of a turbocar. (TNG: "Power Play")

Jean-Luc Picard was trapped with three young children in a unstable turbolift when the USS Enterprise-D was hit by a series of quantum filaments. He used the turboshaft to escape. (TNG: "Disaster")
