TTC service adjustments


Effective November 20 and December 25, 2022
On Sunday, November 20, 2022, (unless otherwise noted), TTC will be making several service adjustments including seasonal adjustments and accommodation for construction activities on various routes. As well, further changes will occur starting December 25, 2022, including seasonal service reductions in effect from December 28 to 30, 2022, and from January 3 to 6, 2023 due to reduced customer demand on select routes during the holidays.

 

November service adjustments – subway


Line 1 Yonge-University
  • Service increase
Subway service on Line 1 Yonge-University will be increased in the morning and afternoon peak periods, Monday to Friday, with the full implementation of One-Person Train Operation (OPTO) and Automatic Train Control (ATC).
 
A minor service reduction will occur in the early evening period Monday to Friday so that service at busier times can be improved.
 
Due to increased ridership, on Saturdays subway service will be increased in the late evening period. Sunday subway service will also be increased in the afternoon, early evening, and late evening periods.
