Monday – Thursday


Mon., Nov. 27, through Thurs., Nov. 30, subway service on the portion of Line 1 Yonge-University between Sheppard-Yonge and Eglinton stations will end nightly at 11 p.m. due to track work.


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 subway stations will remain open for customers to load PRESTO cards, purchase PRESTO tickets and connect to surface routes.


At York Mills Station, the automatic entrance at Old York Mills Rd. will be closed. At Lawrence Station, the entrances at Bedford Park and Ranleigh avenues will be closed.


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 X (formerly Twitter) or sign up for eAlerts.
