Countdown on to TTC’s Line 1 extension9/22/17 6:00 AM
There are now fewer than 90 days to go until we open the much-anticipated Line 1 subway extension to Vaughan.
Six stunning, fully accessible stations will take TTC subway service north of Steeles Avenue and into York Region for the first time, serving York University along the way.
Each station will feature full Wi-Fi coverage, plus cell service for Freedom subscribers. (We encourage you to ask your provider to join the TCONNECT network.)
Modern fare gates, PRESTO readers and self-serve reload machines are featured at all six stations. Train service will be controlled by the state-of-the-art Automatic Train Control system that is being installed in phases along Line 1.
In the three months left until opening day, a lot remains to be done. Commissioning a new subway – even an extension – is a complex operation, involving testing hundreds of thousands of individual assets and systems, a period of trial operations and final safety checks prior to the big day.
To that end, we have assembled a world-class team, with extensive knowledge of commissioning a new subway and in bringing in a new signalling system. Our aim is to show Torontonians (and new subway riders from York Region), how our work to modernize the TTC over the past five years has come together.
The TTC’s enhanced management capability, customer focus and attention to detail will all be on display as we bring Toronto a subway extension that will be the envy of North America.
