TTC service on Line 2 currently suspended for police investigation
Service on Line 2 is currently suspended due to a police investigation, according to the TTC.
Toronto’s transit agency says that at approximately 5:30 am on Friday, staff identified signal issues in the area of Royal York Station. It has since been determined that the issues were the result of a deliberate act of vandalism to TTC equipment.
Toronto Police Service was alerted and they are now investigating.
“In order to accommodate the investigation, the TTC has shut down subway service on Line 2 between Kipling and Jane stations as of 10 am,” states the TTC.”The investigation could take several hours, during which time 40 to 50 express shuttle buses will service stations in the closure area.”
Stations currently impacted include Kipling, Islington, Royal York and Old Mill.
TTC customers heading to and from Pearson Airport can use UP Express via Dundas West Station using a TTC fare.
TTC customers can also use GO Transit on a TTC fare during the closure.
At 10:00 AM, trains will be turning back at on Line 2, at Jane Station, due to a Toronto Police investigation at Royal York Station. Shuttle buses will operate from Jane to Kipling Stations. #TTC
