TTC to briefly pause service in recognition of Canada's National Day of Mourning next Monday
As Canada mourns the passing of Queen Elizabeth II on Mon., Sept. 19, the TTC will pause all service for 96 seconds at 1 p.m.
The ‘stop and stay’ is part of the City of Toronto’s coordinated tribute to Her Majesty on the day of her funeral, also a National Day of Mourning in Canada.
All subway trains will be held at station platforms. Bus and streetcar operators will stop their vehicles at regular service stops prior to 1 p.m. and remain there until the moment of silence has concluded. Wheel-Trans vehicles will be brought to a stop at a safe location. Subway station announcements and social media posts will also be suspended during this time.
TTC customers will be notified of this tribute both prior to and during it through announcements as well as on-screen messages, social media posts and on TTC.ca
This pause coincides with the Provincial moment of silence following Her Late Majesty’s State Funeral on Monday, the last day of the official period of mourning in Canada.
All service will resume immediately following the 96-second pause.
