Countdown on to opening TTC’s Line 1 extension

10/27/17 6:00 AM

With just 51 days to go until the opening of the Line 1 subway extension, preparations are in full swing to get everything ready for the big day.

Featuring six fully accessible, Wi-Fi- and PRESTO-ready stations, a state-of-the-art signalling system and more than eight kilometres of new tunnels and track, the subway will extend beyond Toronto’s boundaries into York Region for the first time.

Finishing touches are now being applied to all six stations while, in parallel, testing and commissioning of assets and systems, trial operations and staff training are all underway.

This Saturday (Oct. 28), you are invited to a preview of three of the new stations: Vaughan Metropolitan Centre, Highway 407 and Pioneer Village.

TTC and project staff will be on hand to show you around and to show off the features of these beautiful additions to Line 1.

Please note that the event, which runs from 1-5 p.m., is not accessible, as elevators and escalators are not yet commissioned and operational.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday or failing that, when the subway extension opens on Dec. 17.
