Upcoming TTC service adjustments

The TTC today detailed upcoming nightly service changes to enable upgrades to critical streetcar infrastructure and for ongoing construction of accessibility features at Lawrence Station.


Buses to replace streetcars on 509 | 510 | 310 late evenings Friday to Monday


Fri., Feb. 23 until Mon., Feb. 26, buses will replace streetcars on routes serving Union Station nightly from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. This is to enable upgrades to overhead streetcar infrastructure and maintenance work in the Harbourfront Tunnel.


509 Harbourfront replacement buses will operate between Exhibition Loop and Union Station. At Union Station, customers can board 509 Harbourfront replacement buses on Bay St., south of Front St.


510/310 Spadina streetcars will be running between Spadina Station and Charlotte Loop, while replacement buses will serve stops along Spadina Ave. between Queen St. and Queens Quay. Customers can transfer between 509 Habourfront and 510 Spadina replacement buses at Queens Quay.


Monday – Thursday early nightly subway closures


Mon., Feb. 26, through Thurs., Feb. 29, subway service on the portion of Line 1 Yonge-University between Eglinton and York Mills stations will end nightly at 11 p.m.


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 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.


The early nightly closures are to accommodate construction of accessibility features at Lawrence Station. Once the construction is completed, Lawrence Station will be equipped with two elevators connecting customers from the station entrance to the bus terminal and subway levels. The station will also feature new barrier-free doors throughout, accessible sliding doors, and improved wayfinding and signage for enhanced customer experience.


Reduced speed zones


The TTC is advising customers travelling on several portions of Line 1 Yonge-University and Line 2 Bloor-Danforth of reduced speed zones, which may result in longer than normal travel times along certain sections of the subway.


As a safety precaution, the TTC reduces speed along sections of rail where maintenance is required, allowing trains to run safely during service hours while minimizing disruptions to customers. They also protect workers who may be required at track level to conduct routine or emergency inspections.


Customers are encouraged to plan ahead and consider the additional time they may need for their trips. A complete list of current reduced speed zones can be found on the TTC website at: https://www.ttc.ca/service-advisories/subway-service/Reduced-Speed-Zones


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, as well as alternate route options. For the most up-to-date information, follow @TTCNotices on X or sign up for eAlerts.
