The TTC is currently shutting down train service on Line 3.

According to the TTC, the Scarborough line is being replaced with 17 shuttle buses between Kennedy and Scarborough Town Centre.

In a Tweet, the TTC’s Stuart Green explained that this is due to operator visibility challenges and that snow build-up is significant enough to disrupt service.

“Better safe than sorry,” he adds.

Last week, the TTC saw major delays during a storm that combined with below freezing temperatures.

“We have all available hands on deck, or on standby, to prepare for/deal with, what is going to be a slow, messy commute home this afternoon,” Green said today. “We’re taking preventative steps to avoid problems across the network and have contingency plans just in case.”
