Last weekend’s one-day subway closure is a thing of the past. This weekend, the TTC is shutting down a whopping 10 stations along Line 1 in a shutdown that will surely make you want to avoid the subway altogether.
Here’s what you need to know:
There will be no subway service on Line 1 between St. Clair West and Union stations on Saturday and Sunday due to the installation of the new Automatic Train Control signalling system. The closure includes St. Andrew, Osgoode, St. Patrick, Queen’s Park, Museum, St. George, Spadina and Dupont terminals.
How To Navigate The Closure
Shuttle 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. The Yonge 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 Monday.
