Upcoming TTC service adjustments

The TTC is advising customers of upcoming service adjustments on its subway and bus networks, including early nightly subway closures starting Mon., Mar. 11 on Line 1 Yonge-University.


Monday – Thursday early nightly subway closures


Mon., Mar. 11 through Thurs., Mar. 14, subway service on the portion of Line 1 Yonge-University between Eglinton and Sheppard-Yonge 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 will allow specialist crews to perform critical state-of-good-repair work, including asbestos abatement and track repairs.


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


In the last seven days, TTC crews have made significant progress in lifting speed restrictions along more than 850 metres of track on Line 1 Yonge-University and Line 2 Bloor-Danforth. Customers are now experiencing faster commutes between Glencairn and Lawrence West stations, and Summerhill and St Clair stations on Line 1, and between Victoria Park and Warden stations on Line 2.


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. Reduced speed zones 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


Bus diversions


Starting 7 p.m. Fri., Mar. 8 until 5 p.m. Sun., Mar. 10, Toronto Water will be conducting watermain repairs on Davisville Ave. between Mt Pleasant Rd. and Bayview Ave. During this time, the 11 Bayview, 14 Glencairn, and 28 Bayview routes, will divert along Moore Ave.


From Mon., Mar. 11 to Fri., Mar. 15, service on the 121 Esplanade-River will be diverting from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily to accommodate emergency watermain repairs on Mill St., between Parliament and Cherry streets. Buses will run along Front St. and Eastern Ave. during these times.


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.
