The TTC’s Line 3 resumed service on Friday.
On Monday, following the massive snowfall that hit Toronto, the Scarborough line was replaced with 17 shuttle buses between Kennedy and Scarborough Town Centre. The closure continued until this morning.

Earlier this week, TTC spokesperson Stuart Green said that the closure was due to operator visibility challenges and that snow build-up was significant enough to disrupt service.
And on Thursday afternoon, Green shared photos of crews, who were working outdoors in the frigid temperatures.
“Just some of what TTC crews have been doing and dealing with over the past few days on Line 3 Scarborough – and they’re still at it,” he said. “We know this is hugely inconvenient for our customers and want it resolved as badly as you do.”
