Extra service for the Jay’s home opener and upcoming service adjustments

This Mon., Apr. 8, the TTC will be increasing subway and streetcar service in anticipation of large crowds expected at two major home games. The Toronto Blue Jays will be hosting their home opener at the Rogers Centre, while the Maple Leafs will be hitting the ice at Scotiabank Arena.


Additional subway service will be running during the afternoon peak until approximately 11 p.m. on Lines 1 and 2, along with extra streetcar capacity on the 509 Harbourfront, ensuring everyone can get to and from the action as efficiently as possible.


Upcoming service adjustments


Friday – Monday nightly streetcar diversions


Starting Fri., Apr. 5, through Mon., Apr. 8, several streetcar routes will be diverting nightly between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. to accommodate important streetcar infrastructure upgrades at the intersection of King St. W. and John St.


503 Kingston Road streetcars will divert at Church St. and operate westbound along Wellington St. to York St., then continue east along King St.


504/304 King and 301 Queen Night streetcar routes will be operating on a split route during these times. East of University Ave., streetcars will divert at Church St. and operate westbound along Wellington St. to York St., and eastbound along King St. West of University Ave., King streetcars will turn back at Spadina Ave., while the 301 Queen Night service will operate to McCaul Loop.


Bus replacement services will run during these hours, providing convenient connections between the split routes.


Sunday late opening and early nightly subway closures between St George and Woodbine stations


This Sun., Apr. 7, subway service on the portion of Line 2 between St George and Woodbine stations will commence at 9:30 a.m. in order to facilitate critical infrastructure work, including beam replacement on the Prince Edward Viaduct and the installation of a new rail switch between Broadview and Chester stations.


Mon., Apr. 8 through Fri., Apr. 12, subway service on the same portion of Line 2 will end nightly at 11 p.m., leading in to a full weekend closure on Apr. 13 and Apr. 14. These closures will allow TTC crews to continue switch replacement work between Broadview and Chester stations.


During these times 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. Bay, Sherbourne, Chester, and Greenwood stations will be closed during these hours. All other subway stations will remain open for customers to load PRESTO cards, 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.


Reduced speed zones


The TTC continues to make significant progress in ongoing nightly track repairs on portions of Lines 1 and 2, enabling the restoration of normal train speeds and improving travel times. Over the past week normal train speeds have resumed on Line 1, northbound from Union to King stations, as well as from Dupont to St Clair West stations.


Currently, reduced speeds are in effect northbound from York Mills to Sheppard stations, southbound from Wilson to Yorkdale, and both ways between Chester and Broadview stations, and Dundas West and Keele stations.


The TTC is committed to ensuring the safety and efficiency of the subway network, and appreciates the patience and understanding of customers during work to enhance system reliability.

Solar eclipse


TTC will be running a regular service during Monday’s solar eclipse, ensuring customers can travel safely and conveniently. The TTC is urging customers traveling between approximately 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. to be mindful of the changing light conditions, especially during the peak of the eclipse at around 3:19 p.m.


The TTC is committed to keeping customers informed about work and events that impact service, as well as alternate route options. For the most up-to-date information, follow @TTCNotices on X or sign up for eAlerts.
