Good news for those riding the subway this weekend! The full subway closure, which was originally scheduled for this weekend, has been reduced to a one-day late opening.
The subway typically opens at 8 a.m. on Sundays, but this weekend, 10 stations will open a few hours later at 10 a.m.
Here’s what you need to know:
There will be no subway service on Line 1 between St. Clair West and Union stations on Sunday prior to 10 a.m. due to track work. 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 will open as usual at 8 a.m. on Sunday morning, 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).
Normal service will resume at 10 a.m. on Sunday.
