As a true Torontonian knows, it's not exactly unusual for a morning to begin with some sort of a TTC disruption — whether that's an unexpected delay or dangerous overcrowding at a station.
But luckily, rather than having to convince your boss or your teacher you were late because you were stuck on the subway or waiting for a shuttle bus because of a service delay, the TTC can actually help you out by writing you a late note.
Following Thursday's major service disruption, in which a Line 1 subway car derailed and ended service between St Clair West and Union Station, the city's transit agency confirmed you can still get your hands on a late note.
All you have to do is call the TTC customer service hotline at 416-393-3030 and request an investigation report. The transit service will then give you a note confirming that the service has been disrupted or delayed alongside the date, time, location, and duration of the disruption.
See, sometimes the TTC has your back after all.
