This weekend on the TTC

This Sat., Sept. 10 and Sun., Sept. 11, there will be no subway service on the portion of Line 1 between Sheppard-Yonge 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 working on accessibility improvements at Lawrence Station.


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. All stations will remain open for people to load their PRESTO card, purchase PRESTO Tickets, or connect to surface routes. In addition to the shuttles, the 97 Yonge bus and the University side of Line 1 will be available as alternatives during the closure.


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.
