TTC working to restore transit service following power outage in Toronto's east end this morning

Jan 8 2018, 1:06 pm

Toronto’s east side experienced a major power outage this morning around 6 am following a loss of power supply from Hydro One, and it might wreak havoc on your Monday morning commute.

On Twitter, Toronto Hydro reported that the outage affected areas between Eglinton Avenue East and Lake Shore Boulevard from Yonge Street to Victoria Park Avenue.

While Hydro One crews were able to reroute power back to Toronto around 8:20 am, the TTC has been scrambling to restore service in time for the Monday morning commute.

Expect a slow start from vehicles dispatching from Leslie Barn and Greenwood Yard while shuttle buses and rocket trains supplement subway service along Line 2.

Despite the slow start, Toronto should be celebrating. Temperatures in the city will finally exceed 0°C following weeks of subzero temperatures.
