On June 9, there will be no subway service on Line 1 between St. Clair and Union stations for installation of the new ATC signalling system. The closure includes Summerhill, Rosedale, Bloor-Yonge, Wellesley, College, Dundas, Queen and King terminals.
How To Navigate The Closures
Shuttle buses will operate along the normal subway route. Buses will stop at all the regular subway station stops, just outside the typical zone. Wheel-Trans will also be available to TTC riders requiring accessible service.
As Lawrence Station is not yet an accessible station, customers travelling southbound on Line 1 who require an elevator should exit at York Mills Station.
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).
Normal service will resume on Monday morning.
