Those looking to navigate the downtown core this weekend should make alternate plans to taking the subway.
While originally the TTC was planning to close Line 1 from Bloor to Osgoode both on April 13 and 14, a revised schedule was issued on April 12.
On April 13, the portion of Line 1 between Bloor and Union stations will be closed as TTC crews continue Automatic Train Control installation. At 11 pm and through Sunday April 14, the closure will extend to Osgoode Station for the remainder of the weekend.
Regular service will resume Monday at 6 am.
The revised Saturday closure will allow customers who are traveling to cheer on our home teams to more easily access the Rogers Centre and Scotiabank Arena. Customers can use the following service alternatives:
– 504 King streetcar from Broadview Station to King Station
– Transfer to the University portion of Line 1 using the 94 Wellesley route, 506 Carlton route, 505 Dundas route, or at St George Station
– 510 Spadina streetcar to Union Station. Note: Increased service will be provided on this route.
Frequent shuttle bus service will run, stopping outside each station along the route.
- Tory has 'long list of questions' about Ford's transit plan
- There are 54 more TTC closures planned for 2019
- Limited-use, disposable PRESTO tickets are now available
When the ATC is fully installed on Line 1, it will provide a more modern and reliable signal system that will help the TTC improve capacity by allowing for increased trips on the line.
While the TTC does most subway maintenance at the conclusion of service each night, it continues to require weekend closures to complete critical infrastructure and ATC upgrades, as well as work on the Eglinton Crosstown.
