TTC closing 16 stations along Line 1 throughout the weekend

May 28 2021, 10:09 am

The TTC is closing down service to 16 stations along Line 1 at various points this weekend to allow for signal system testing.

On Saturday May 29, Line 1 service at the nine stations between Eglinton and King stations will be suspended so that crews can carry out necessary Automatic Train Control signal system testing. Then on Sunday May 30, service at the seven stations between Sheppard-Yonge and Bloor-Yonge will be suspended for the same testing.

TTC will run shuttle buses in place of regular Line 1 subway service, and the buses will stop at each of the stations that are closing down.

Summerhill, College, and Queen stations will be fully closed on Saturday, but all other stations will stay open for PRESTO fare purchases and access to other transportation options. Line 2 at Bloor-Yonge and Line 4 at Sheppard-Yonge will still operate.

Because King Station is not yet an accessible station, the TTC is asking customers travelling on Line 1 who require an accessible connection to get off at Union Station and ask a TTC customer service employee for assistance.
