The TTC is closing eight subway stations for the entire weekend
The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is shutting down eight consecutive subway stops this weekend, meaning your commute might be a bit slower than usual.
On Saturday, April 1 and Sunday, April 2, there will be no subway service on Line 1 between Bloor-Yonge and York Mills Station.

You can thank the work being done on the Automatic Train Control (ATC) signal system for this closure, a necessary system that allows the TTC to safely run more trains closer together.
Shuttle buses will transport commuters through these eight stops until regular subway service resumes on Monday, April 3 at 6 am.
Summerhill Station will be closed; however, all other stations will remain open for customers to load their Presto cards and connect to surface routes.
The closure for ATC work comes just a few months after the system’s completion, ending a construction schedule responsible for years of rolling weekend subway outages.
