Early morning signal problem causes chaos on the TTC (PHOTOS)

If today’s cold weather wasn’t enough to put you in a bad mood, the commute on the TTC this morning probably was.

Many were delayed on Line 1 Yonge-University as a signal problem impacted the morning service.

Transit riders were advised there would be delays of up to 15 minutes but in true TTC fashion, this ended up being a much longer wait.

The delay, regardless of how brief it was, resulted in chaos at the stations, as commuters were forced to cram on platforms as they waited for trains, a scene that can make anyone feel claustrophobic.

Photos shared on social media even show people crammed on station steps as they waited, further showing that dangerous overcrowding continues to be an issue for commuters.

While Toronto’s relief line has been approved by the provincial government, commuters won’t feel any relief until its completed, which is expected to be in 2031.
