This Sunday, April 19 only, there will be no subway service on the portion of Line 1 between Eglinton and Bloor-Yonge stations to allow TTC crews to continue installation and testing of the Automatic Train Control (ATC) signalling system.

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.

Summerhill Station will be closed. All other stations will remain open for PRESTO fare purchases and access to surface routes and Line 2.

Wheel-Trans will be available upon request from any station throughout the closure. Customers can speak with any TTC customer service staff member for more information about service frequency.

While the TTC does most subway maintenance at the conclusion of service each night, it continues to require weekend and early weeknight closures to complete critical infrastructure and ATC upgrades.

The TTC is committed to keeping customers informed about work and events that impact service and about alternative routes. For the most up-to-date information, follow @TTCNotices on Twitter or sign up for eAlerts.
