Upcoming TTC subway closures and weekend diversions

The following event will result in adjustments to TTC service this weekend:


From 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Sun., March 12, the 19 Bay, 72B Pape, and 121 Esplanade-River will be diverting to accommodate the Toronto St. Patrick’s Day Race.


Customers are encouraged to leave themselves extra time when travelling on those routes and visit ttc.ca for help planning their trips. 


Monday to Thursday


Mon., March 13 through Thurs., March 16, subway service on the portion of Line 1 between Lawrence and St Clair stations will end at 11 p.m. nightly due to Metrolinx construction of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT (ECLRT).


Replacement shuttle buses will run frequently, 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 will be available as an alternative during the closure.

As Lawrence Station is not yet accessible, customers travelling southbound on Line 1 who require an accessible connection should exit the train at York Mills Station and see any TTC customer service employee for assistance.


All stations will remain open for people to load their PRESTO card or purchase PRESTO Tickets and connect to surface routes.


Nightly single-track operation between Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and Pioneer Village stations


Beginning at 11 p.m. on Mon., March 13 nightly through Thurs., March 16, trains on Line 1 between Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and Pioneer Village stations will alternate use of the southbound tracks to accommodate maintenance work on the northbound tracks. Regular service will resume the following morning.


The TTC will operate a subway shuttle train between Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and Pioneer Village stations. The subway shuttle train will run on the southbound track, while repair work is carried out on the northbound track.


Customers will board northbound trains on the southbound side of the platforms and may experience slightly longer than normal wait and travel times.


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.
