Another major TTC closure is coming up this weekend, and should be on your radar if heading out on Saturday or Sunday.

On March 10 and 11, TTC crews will continue installation of the Automatic Train Control (ATC) signal system. In order to complete this work, the portion of Line 1 Yonge-University between St Clair West and Union stations will be closed.

Throughout the closure, express shuttle buses will run between Spadina and St Clair West stations only.

The TTC also encourages customers to use the following alternatives:
– Line 2 Bloor-Danforth
– Yonge portion of Line 1
– 6 Bay bus
– East-west streetcars on College, Dundas, Queen and King Sts. to connect with the Yonge portion of Line 1

St Clair West, Spadina, St George and Union stations will be open for fare sales and connections to surface vehicles. All other stations on this part of Line 1 will be closed.

When ATC is fully implemented in 2020, it will provide a more modern and reliable signal system that will allow for an increase in the number of trains operating on Line 1.

This is the second of three such closures on this portion of Line 1 in 2018.

The next scheduled subway closures are:
March 17-18 – Line 3 Scarborough for TTC track work
March 30-April 1 – Line 1 Yonge-University – Finch West to Wilson for ATC signal upgrades
