Last weekend's lack of TTC subway closures is now a distant memory. This weekend, the closures are back with an intense Line 1 shut down that will make you want to avoid the subway altogether.
Here’s what you need to know:
There will be no subway service on Line 1 between St. Clair West and Union stations on Saturday and Sunday, due to the installation of the new Automatic Train Control signalling system. The closure includes St. Andrew, Osgoode, St. Patrick, Queen’s Park, Museum, St. George, Spadina and Dupont terminals.
You can also take bus 7 from Bathurst station which runs parallel to the west side of Line 1 north of Bloor.
Dupont and Museum stations will be closed. All other stations within the closure area will be open for the sale of fares and connection to surface routes
How To Pay
If you’re paying with PRESTO during the subway closure just tap your card when you first board the TTC.
If you are transferring from the subway to a shuttle bus or from a shuttle bus to the subway don’t tap your PRESTO card again. Unlike normal subway to bus transfers, shuttle buses do not need a second tap.
Cash and token fares will still be accepted on the shuttle bus, which will get you a transfer onto the subway (and vice versa).
All normal service will resume on Monday.
