Select TTC subway stations on a portion of Line 1 and Line 2 will face service disruptions this weekend and early closures next week.

Weekend closures

According to the transit commission, on Saturday, September 19, there will be no subway service on line one from Lawrence Station and St Clair station due to work on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT.

Shuttle buses will be available, stopping at each station on the affected route and will run frequently along Yonge street.

The 97 young bus and the University line will also be available as alternatives for the closure this Saturday.

All stations will be open for PRESTO sales and access to any surface routes.

“Customers who require Wheel-Trans service can speak with any TTC customer service staff member for assistance,” said the TTC.

“As Lawrence Station is not yet accessible, customers requiring an accessible connection should use York Mills Station instead.”

The TTC’s Line 2 from Saint George and Broadview station will have a late start to subway service, beginning at 12 pm to accommodate beam replacement on the Prince Edward Viaduct, according to the transit commission.

All stations, except for Bay and Sherbourne stations, will be open for PRESTO sales as well as surface routes and Line 1. Shuttle buses will also be running.

Next Week closures

From September 21 to 24, Service on the portion of line one from Sheppard-Yonge and Eglinton stations will end nightly at 11 pm for track maintenance and ATC single upgrades.

Replacement shuttle buses will be available and stopping at each station along the route with TTC staff available to draft customers at each location.

Once again, the 97 Yonge bus and the University side of Line 1 will be available as alternatives during the closure.

“All stations will remain open for fare sales and connection to surface routes and Line 4,” said the TTC.

At York Mills Station, the Old York Mills Road entrance and exit will be closed and at Lawrence Station, the automatic entrances and exits at Ranleigh Avenue and Bedford Park Avenue will also be closed.

“While the TTC does most subway maintenance at the conclusion of service each night, it continues to require weekend and early weeknight closures to complete critical infrastructure and state of good repair work as well as ATC signal upgrades,” said the transit commission.
