This will be the last of the cancelled TTC subway closures before they resume their regularly scheduled annoyance next week, so we have a full guide on how to prepare yourself for the coming closures in the weeks ahead.
For this weekend, the closure was originally scheduled to affect four stations on Line 1. It may have been cancelled, but it will be a constant presence starting next weekend through November.
This means no more TTC subway closures until October 27 and 28 (unless someone at the TTC changes their mind again).
Below you can find a review of the usual closures so you can prepare yourself for next month.
There will be more of the regularly scheduled subway closures between Lawrence and St. Clair stations this weekend.
This is a return to regularly scheduled closures on the Line 1 track as the LRT is put into place. Closures will continue fairly regularly into December.
How To Navigate The Closure
Shuttle buses will operate along the normal subway route via Yonge St. They stop at all the regular subway station stops, but just outside the typical zone. TTC operators will direct you where to wait in line.
You can also grab the 97 Yonge bus if you prefer to avoid the shuttle.
And the University side of Line 1 is still operational, so you can travel north and south along there as an alternative.
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 the Monday after the closure.
