Portions of TTC's Line 2 subway service will start late on Sunday

Feb 12 2021, 10:25 am

Subway service on portions of the TTC’s Line 2 on Sunday and Line 1 next week will end early for track work and ATC signal upgrades.

On February 14, subway service on a portion of Line 2 from Warden station to Kennedy station will begin by 12 pm due to track work.

“Shuttle buses will run between the two stations. Both stations will remain open for fare sales and access to surface routes and Line 3,” said the transit commission.

Since Warden Station is not accessible just yet, customers travelling eastbound on Line 2 who need an accessible connection are suggested to exit at Victoria Park Station.

Next week, from February 16 to 18, subway service on a portion of Line 1 between Finch and Eglinton stations will end early at 11 pm due to the necessary tunnel and signal upgrades.

Shuttle buses will be running and stopping at each station along the route, with TTC staff readily available to help customers at boarding and offloading locations.

“In addition to the shuttles, the 97 Yonge bus and the University side of Line 1 will be available as alternatives during the closure,” said the TTC.

North York Centre Station will be closed; however, all other stations will stay open for PRESTO sales and access to surface routes and Line 4.

According to the TTC, at Sheppard-Yonge Station, the automatic entrances and exits at Yonge Street and Poyntz Avenue and Yonge Street and Anndale Drive will be closed.

At York Mills Station, the Old York Mills Road entrance and exit will be closed. The automatic entrances and exits at Ranleigh Avenue, and Bedford Park Avenue at Lawrence Station will also be closed.

“Customers who require Wheel-Trans service can speak with any TTC customer service staff member for assistance,” said the transit commission.

“While the TTC does most subway maintenance at the conclusion of service each night, it continues to require weekend and early weeknight closures to complete critical infrastructure and state of good repair work as well as ATC signal upgrades.”
