Due to the weather, the TTC stopped running Line 3 in Scarborough, and over 300 flights were delayed at Pearson Airport… and this remains the case this morning.

Line 3 is still being replaced by shuttle buses, as widespread delays continue on the TTC.

“Stating the obvious, but things are slow and messy across the city,” said TTC’s Stuart Green. “Line 3 has bus replacement. Blowing snow causing switch issues on Line 2, buses running Warden to Woodbine. Bus routes will be heavily impacted. Streetcar service building but expect delays.”

But delays are also experienced along Line 2, where shuttles are running between Woodbine and Warden Stations, due to a signal issue at Pape Station.

Streetcars are operating but there is build up on the rails, so they will be travelling slower than usual. There are added buses along some of the busier streetcar routes.

As for air travel, almost 200 flights have been affected by cancellations at Pearson Airport this morning.

“Winter weather conditions continue to impact flight schedules into the overnight period,” said the airport on Monday night. “Delays and cancellations are possible into the morning as a residual effect from today’s weather.”

Over 100 arrival flights were cancelled and more are potentially expected throughout the morning.

Whatever you do out there today, give yourself some extra time on the road, it’s still slippery and it’s also very cold.
