UPDATE: As of 1:25 pm, the TTC reported that the delay has been cleared and service resumed.
There’s no service on Line 1 between St Clair and Lawrence, according to the TTC.
The TTC reported the service suspension between the stations just before noon on Monday, and said it was due to a Toronto Fire investigation. Shuttle buses began operating shortly after.
According to a tweet from TTC’s Brad Ross, “water was leaking into Eglinton Station, causing electrical arcing and sparking of the third rail.”

The TTC advises customers to use surface routes, and is predicting longer than wait times for commuters.
Line 1: Due to the service suspension between St Clair and Lawrence, customers will experience, longer than normal wait times, Dupont to Bloor. Alternatively customers can utilize surface routes to continue their journey. #TTC
