Extra TTC service for Saturday events and upcoming nightly subway closures

The TTC will be running extra subway and streetcar services this Sat., Mar. 23 to give customers attending several events in the city more transit options, with the GO Transit Lakeshore West line closed for construction.


With Toronto FC, the Maple Leafs, and the Marlies all hosting home games, along with the Toronto Game Expo at Exhibition Place, the TTC will be running extra service on Line 1 Yonge-University and Line 2 Bloor-Danforth. Extra streetcars will also be running on the 509 Harbourfront and 511 Bathurst routes.


Monday – Friday early nightly subway closures between St George and Woodbine stations


Mon., Mar. 25 through Fri., Mar. 29, subway service on the portion of Line 2 Bloor-Danforth between St George and Woodbine stations will end nightly at 11 p.m., leading in to a full weekend closure on Mar. 30 and Mar. 31.


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.


The closures will allow crews to perform essential track maintenance, including work to replace a rail switch between Broadview and Chester stations.


Nightly single-track operation between Finch West and Vaughan Metropolitan Centre stations


Mon., Mar. 25 through Wed., Mar. 27, trains on Line 1 Yonge-University between Finch West and Vaughan Metropolitan Centre stations will operate on a single track nightly from 11 p.m., to accommodate maintenance work on the northbound tracks. Customers will need to change trains at Finch West Station to continue their journey. The TTC is advising customers to expect delays of up to 20 minutes during this time.


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.
