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.


Lawrence Station will be closed. All other stations will remain open for customers to load their PRESTO card, purchase PRESTO tickets and connect to surface routes.


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.


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.
