TTC prepared for winter storm, ready to get customers home in PM rush

With heavy snow forecasted to fall in Toronto this afternoon, the TTC is taking proactive measures to keep customers and employees safe while delivering as much service as possible.


Extra TTC employees and maintenance vehicles have been deployed throughout the system spreading salt and clearing surfaces of snow, keeping signals, switches, and overhead power operating, and attending to any weather-related challenges.


The TTC will also be deploying additional buses on a route-by-route basis. This strategic measure is aimed at preserving service levels in areas where heavy snowfall or other adverse weather conditions result in significant slowdowns, detours, or disruptions.


At 3 p.m. today, service at 56 bus stops in areas prone to weather-related disruptions will be temporarily suspended to safeguard customers and maintain operational efficiency. Customers are advised to check if their bus stop is in service before they travel by visiting: QR codes displayed on signs at each of the 56 stops allow customers to check in real-time if their stop is in service.


Wheel-Trans will continue to provide service, however customers may experience delays and additional wait times.


Other measures to ensure service continuity include:


  • Running anti-icing trains to keep the power rail and tracks clear of snow and ice.

  • Spraying anti-icing on the entire streetcar overhead network, as well as on the ground at all bus, streetcar, and subway divisions, to ensure our vehicles can operate safely.

  • The TTC will stay in regular communication with the City to ensure crews are aware of issues on transit routes.

  • Social media and web updates will be pushed out frequently to keep customers informed.


The TTC is committed to providing a safe and reliable service in the most extreme weather, but operations can be impacted by road conditions.

Customers are advised to follow @TTCNotices on X or check for updates, and to allow extra travel time in the event of bad weather.
