Several closures on Line 1 will affect 20 subway stations this weekend

With another weekend in the city fast approaching, it can only mean one thing: it’s time to start planning for the inevitable TTC subway closures.

And this weekend, the TTC is closing two different portions of Line 1 – one each day – to allow crews to continue installing the Automatic Train Control (ATC) signalling system.

As a result, the partial closures will end up affecting 20 different stations over the course of the weekend.

Here’s what to prepare for:

Saturday, November 9

On Saturday only, there will be no subway service between St Clair West and King stations, resulting in the closure of 11 stops.

Line 1 closures

Line 1: St Clair West to King single-day closure November 9

Shuttles buses will run, stopping at each station along the route and TTC staff will be on hand to direct customers to shuttle boarding and offloading locations, which will vary from station to station.

Dupont Station will be closed, but all others will remain open for fare sales and access to surface routes.

Wheel-Trans will also be available upon request from any station. As King Station is not yet accessible, customers who require an accessible connection should use Queen Station instead.

Sunday, November 10

On Sunday only, there will be no subway service between Bloor-Yonge and Osgoode stations, resulting in nine station closures.

Line 1 closures

Line 1: Bloor-Yonge to Osgoode single-day closure November 10

Just like Saturday, there will be shuttles buses running and stopping at each station along the route.

TTC staff will also be available to help customers to shuttle boarding and offloading locations, which will vary from station to station. All stations will remain open for fare sales and access to surface routes.

Wheel-Trans will be available upon request from any station and customers can speak with a TTC staff member for more information about service frequency.
