How To Navigate The ClosureShuttle buses will operate along the normal subway route along University Ave. Buses will stop at all the regular subway station stops, just outside the typical zone. TTC operators will direct you where to wait in line.The Yonge side of Line 1 is still operational, so you can travel north and south along there as an alternative.

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.
