Surface routes diverting for Toronto Hydro work

This Sat., Aug. 6 only, TTC crews will repair and replace subway track between St George and Union stations on Line 1 Yonge-University, resulting in that portion of the subway being closed for the day.  During the closure, crews will also perform maintenance work on the signal system in the area.

Shuttle buses will operate, stopping only at subway stations along the route. Wheel-Trans buses will be available between St. George and Union stations upon request. Customers can speak with any TTC staff member to request the service.

Museum Station will be closed for the day, but all other stations will be open for customers to purchase fares.

As PRESTO is not yet available on all shuttle buses, customers are advised to carry their Metropass, tokens, tickets or cash for fare payment.

Customers traveling from the west and going to Union Station can transfer to the 510 Spadina streetcar at Spadina Station or continue to the Yonge portion of Line 1 at Bloor-Yonge Station for subway service south.

Regular subway service resumes Sun., Aug. 7 at 8 a.m.

The next scheduled subway closures are:

  • Line 2 Bloor-Danforth - Pape to St. George - Aug. 13-14
  • Line 1- Lawrence to Bloor-Yonge - Aug. 27-28
  • Line 2- Pape to St. George - Sept. 3-5

Maintaining and modernizing transit infrastructure is critical to ensuring the TTC remains a safe and reliable transit system for its 1.8 million daily riders. The TTC thanks its customers, Toronto residents and businesses, and the public for their patience and understanding.

510/317 Spadina and 509 Harbourfront

This weekend, streetcars on the 510/317 Spadina and 509 Harbourfront routes will divert for overnight Toronto Hydro work both Sat., Aug. 6 from midnight to 8 a.m. Sunday, and Sun., Aug. 7 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday.

  • 510/317 Spadina: Streetcars will turn back at Queens Quay Loop, located at the intersection of Queens Quay and Spadina Ave.
  • A shuttle bus service will operate from Bay and Front Sts. to Queens Quay Loop to replace both the 510/317 Spadina and 509 Harbourfront routes.


As the TTC and the City of Toronto complete important infrastructure work this weekend - and throughout the summer - customers should check ttc.ca for bus and streetcar route diversions. As well, to accommodate the many events that occur in a vibrant and exciting city like Toronto, some surface routes will divert for short periods of time. Customers can receive up-to-the-minute advisories by subscribing to e-Alerts or following @TTCnotices on Twitter.
