Upcoming TTC subway closures and weekend service updates
This Sat., May 28 and Sun., May 29, there will be no subway service on the portion of Line 1 between Finch and St Clair stations due to Metrolinx construction of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT (ECLRT). The TTC will also take advantage of this closure to continue upgrading the ATC signaling system.
Replacement shuttle buses will run, 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.
North York Centre Station will be closed. All other stations will remain open for people to load their PRESTO card, purchase PRESTO Tickets, or connect to surface routes.
At Sheppard-Yonge Station, the automatic entrances/exits at Yonge St. and Poyntz Ave. and at Yonge St. and Anndale Dr. will be closed. At York Mills Station, the Old York Mills Rd. entrance/exit will be closed. At Lawrence Station, the automatic entrances/exits at Ranleigh Ave. and Bedford Park Ave. will also be closed. Other entrances and exits will be available for customers at each subway station.
Customers who require Wheel-Trans service can speak with any TTC customer service staff member for assistance.
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 state-of-good-repair work as well as ATC signal upgrades.
Several TTC routes will be diverting to accommodate events planned in the city this weekend.
On Fri., May 27 and Sat., May 28, the 19 Bay and 505 Dundas will be diverting intermittently to accommodate Gumball 3000. Also on Sat., May 28, the 29 Dufferin will divert from 4:30 -10:00 p.m. for the TFC game.
On Sun., May 29, the 80 Queensway will divert to accommodate ActiveTO road closures, while the 174 Ontario Place-Exhibition will not be running from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The UJA's 53rd Annual Walk with Israel will also be taking place this Sun., May 29, and may cause minor delays and service interruptions to the 7 Bathurst & 104 Faywood.
Customers are encouraged to leave themselves extra time when travelling through these areas and visit ttc.ca for help planning their trips.
The TTC is committed to keeping customers informed about work and events that impact service and about alternate routes. For the most up-to-date information, follow @TTCNotices on Twitter or sign up for eAlerts.
