Note: Service has resumed on Line 1 between St. Clair West and Union stations, according to the TTC.

Torontonians have faced major setbacks throughout their Thursday morning commute due to a work car derailment that occurred at St. George Station.

Since about 5:45 am, there has been no service on Line 1 between St. Clair West and Union Stations.

Shuttle buses are running, while TTC staff and Toronto police are advising commuters to practice patience and seek alternate routes, if possible.

Customers may use GO Transit for the cost of TTC fare for the duration of the closure.

If you were lucky enough to avoid this morning’s chaotic commute, here’s a look at what you missed out on:

This is the second time that the TTC has dealt with a derailment during rush hour in the last month.

Another incident occurred on Line 2 on January 22, when a partial derailment meant no service between Ossington and Jane stations for several hours.
