The TTC is reminding customers that this weekend, Aug. 25-26, there will be no service on the portion of Line 1 Yonge-University between Sheppard West and Lawrence West stations, as TTC crews continue to install the Automated Train Control (ATC) signal system.
This closure, originally scheduled for Finch West to Lawrence West, has been shortened, resulting in improved customer service.
Shuttle buses will run, loading and offloading as follows:
- Lawrence West: load and offload inside station
- Yorkdale: TTC will provide a special shuttle bus to accommodate customers travelling to and from Yorkdale Mall. Customers can transfer between the Line 1 shuttle and the Yorkdale express on Dufferin St. Please see map for details.
- Wilson: load and offload inside station
- Sheppard West: load and offload inside station
Wheel-Trans will be available upon request from any station through the weekend. Customers can speak with any TTC staff member for more information about service frequency.
When ATC is fully implemented on Line 1, it will provide a more modern and reliable signal system that will allow for an increase in the number of trains operating on the line. While the TTC does most subway maintenance at the conclusion of service each night, it continues to require weekend closures to complete critical infrastructure and ATC upgrades.
