This weekend on the TTC
March 11, 2020
This Sat., Mar. 14, there will be no subway service on the portion of Line 1 between Sheppard-Yonge and Eglinton stations due to track maintenance.
Replacement shuttle buses will run along Yonge St., stopping at each station along the route. TTC staff will be on hand to direct customers to shuttle boarding and offloading locations, which will vary from station to station. In addition to the shuttles, the 97 Yonge bus and the University side of Line 1 will be available as alternatives during the closure.
All stations will remain open for fare sales and access to surface routes and Line 4.
