Subway opens late, July 25: Broadview to St George



Jul11_StG-Broadview.png

The TTC is delaying the start of service along Line 2 Bloor - Danforth subway between Broadview and St George stations this Sunday, July 25. All Line 2 trains operate only between Kennedy and Broadview stations and between Kipling and St George stations before noon that day.

Shuttle buses partially replace subway service between the two stations, stopping on the street near stations on the closed section of the line.

Most stations on the closed section of Line 2 remain open so you can pay for fares or connect with buses, streetcars and Line 1 Yonge - University subway trains. However, Sherbourne and Bay stations are closed before noon.

Although shuttle buses are accessible, Wheel-Trans service is also available between Broadview and St George stations. Ask staff in each station for information about Wheel-Trans service.

While this section of Line 2 is closed, City of Toronto contractors work under the Prince Edward Viaduct to replace beams.

According to a TTC news release, “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… signal upgrades.”


The TTC is closing this section Line 2 once more over the next few weeks:

  • Sunday, August 8 — Broadview to St George — open late — Prince Edward Viaduct beam replacement.

Shuttle buses

(We’ve based this part of the post on information the TTC supplied during previous occasions that it closed the subway between Broadview and St George.)

At Broadview Station, buses drop off passengers on Broadview Avenue beside the subway station entrance / exit. They then loop along Broadview, Erindale, Hurndale and Danforth Avenues. The buses pick up passengers on the north side of Danforth, before heading westward toward St George Station.

The shuttle buses operate along Danforth Avenue, the Prince Edward Viaduct and Bloor Streets East and West. They drop off or pick up passengers at the intersections nearest to all other subway stations on the closed section of the line:

  • at Castle Frank Road, Sherbourne, Yonge and Bay Streets.

At St George Station, buses drop off passengers on St. George Street beside the station entrance / exit. They then loop along St. George, Prince Arthur Avenue and Bedford Road. The buses pick up passengers on the west side of Bedford beside the subway station entrance / exit, before heading eastward toward Broadview Station.
