TTC updates customers on Line 2 service disruption, cancels planned closure on Line 1

The TTC is advising customers on Line 2 Bloor-Danforth that subway service between Kipling and Jane Stations remains suspended following yesterday’s track-level fire near Islington Station which caused extensive damage to critical electrical systems necessary to operate trains safely.


The transit agency anticipates that subway service between Kipling and Jane stations will remain closed through the weekend and could remain closed into early next week. Dozens of shuttle buses are in operation to provide alternate transportation options, and extra TTC station staff have been deployed within the closure zone to assist customers.


In addition to shuttle buses, customers have the option to ride GO Transit at the TTC fare on the GO Lakeshore West Line, providing additional transit options between the west-end and downtown.


While the cause of yesterday’s fire is under investigation, the TTC is assuring customers that all available resources have been mobilized to expedite repairs on the complex systems affected by the incident.


The TTC apologizes for the inconvenience and disruption that this service disruption has caused to customers and is committed to restoring safe and reliable service as quickly as possible. Dedicated crews are working around-the-clock to address the damage and make necessary repairs to ensure the resumption of normal subway operations along the affected portion of Line 2.


The TTC is cancelling the planned Saturday subway closure between Davisville and York Mills stations


To prioritize resources for Line 2 service restoration, the TTC has cancelled tomorrow's planned subway closure on Line 1 Yonge-University, which was scheduled between Davisville and York Mills stations. This move ensures that all available resources are focused on supplementing and restoring service on Line 2 as quickly as possible.


All planned track and tunnel work at Eglinton Station, as well as work requiring the closure of Lawrence Station, will be rescheduled to a later date.


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.
