Well the old TTC is at it again with four subway stations closures announced for this weekend.
Luckily, the TTC promised earlier this year that there would be no more subway closures on long weekends, so maybe we’ll have a break next weekend over Labour Day.
York University Students should plan extra time if they need to get to and from campus, since the closures will be right around the North Campus.
There will be no subway service on Line 1 between Finch West and Lawrence West stations on Saturday and Sunday, due to signal upgrades. That covers Downsview Park, Sheppard West, Wilson, and Yorkdale terminals.
How To Navigate The Closure
Shuttle buses will load and offload as follows:
- Yorkdale: TTC will provide a special shuttle bus to accommodate customers travelling to and from Yorkdale Mall.
- Customers can transfer between the Line 1 shuttle and the Yorkdale express at the intersection of Dufferin St. and Yorkdale Rd.
- Finch West: offload on Keele St. at Four Winds Dr.
- All other stations can load and offload inside the stations (unlike other closures which require shuttle buses to load on the street)
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 weekend.
