It was commuters as far as the eye could see on the TTC Tuesday morning.
The subway problems began around 6:30 am, when the TTC said that “customers may experience longer than normal wait times between Sheppard W and Vaughan Metropolitan.”
But the TTC’s problems continued throughout the morning.
Around 7:30 am, trains were holding at St Andrew Station due to mechanical difficulties on a train. At the same time, the TTC had trains holding both ways on Line 1, at Eglinton Station, due to a Toronto Fire investigation.
And then at 8:10 am, trains were holding at Davisville Station with an emergency activation alarm on board a train. Twenty minutes later, TTC trains were holding at Museum with a medical emergency on board a train.
As the holds went on, the crowds got bigger at the stations, and the city vented.
“Line 1” began trending on Twitter, as many TTC customers expressed frustrations with the morning commute.
Here’s what it looked like:
I’m having trouble remembering a time when I wasn’t on this platform. Fresh air is but a distant memory. The sunshine? A legend from my youth. If I don’t make it out of this, just know I died doing what I love…commuting to work. pic.twitter.com/O4K2ZqrEid
