Toronto blizzard causes mass transit delays for TTC and GO

Jan 17 2022, 3:22 pm

Monday morning’s blizzard sent Toronto-area traffic into a tizzy, causing mass delays across both the TTC and Go Transit.

Riders trying to board buses, trains, streetcars, and subways were met with cancelled transit service and long waits — some over an hour — as the Toronto-area blizzard raged on.

According to the TTC website, all bus and streetcar routes are affected by snow-covered roadways, and the transit agency is warning customers to expect longer than normal wait times and travel times. Even with this warning, the TTC has issued service alerts for a number of routes particularly affected by the snow.
