At least surface traffic is also completely screwed over so Maybe non-transit-users see how THEY benefit from a successful public transportation system even if they don’t use it personally? Maybe? #TTC pic.twitter.com/32RkKIMmvN

#SubwayProblems do have a positive side. Even if you aren’t affected, go in late any way and say “hey boss, what a crowd in the subway. Here is video from @KevinFrankish’s twitter feed to prove it”. @TTCnotices @TTChelps pic.twitter.com/ExoNG7PAZx

Lineup to shuttle buses this am. Why do pple put up w/delays all the time? No matter when or what day I go on the subway, there’s a problem big or small. @ttc It’s hardly a good look for you to preach pple about paying their fares when you think nothing of stealing their time. pic.twitter.com/S9HjXOQHcs

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.
