No subway service on the TTC's Line 2 due to partial train derailment

Jan 22 2020, 2:04 pm

UPDATE: Just after 10:30 am, the TTC said that service has resumed on Line 2. 

Commuters were in for a major headache on Wednesday, as an early morning “partial derailment” caused the TTC to suspend service from Jane to Ossington on Line 2.

Just after 7 am, the TTC announced there was no service between Ossington and Jane while they “fix a mechanical problem.”

TTC’s Stuart Green said that 100 shuttle buses were ordered, as crews assessed the scene.

“This could take a while,” he said in a tweet.

Green later added that the crews reported a partial derailment, and said that “this will be a few hours to resolve.”

He also said there was still no ETA on service resuming.

While the TTC did issue a number of warnings, commuters were still very upset as the delay resulted in overcrowding on a number of surface routes.
