The TTC is closing Line 1 Yonge - University subway earlier than usually between Sheppard West and St Clair West stations Monday, September 26 until Thursday, September 29. Line 1 subway trains operate only between Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and Sheppard West stations and between St Clair West and Finch stations after 11 p.m. those evenings.

Frequent shuttle buses partly replace subway service. The buses drop off or pick up passengers near all stations on the closed section of the line. (Or, consider a shuttle-bus alternative.)

Most stations on the closed section of Line 1 remain open so you can pay fares or connect with TTC and York Region Transit buses. However, Yorkdale and Glencairn stations are closed.

While this section of Line 1 is closed, TTC crews are maintaining the tracks.

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 of Line 1 at least twice during October:

  • Monday, October 3 until Thursday, October 6 — Sheppard West to St Clair West — close early — track work.
  • Tuesday, October 11 until Thursday, October 13 — Sheppard West to St Clair West — close early — track work.

Metrolinx contractors continue building the future Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit line between Mount Dennis and Kennedy.


Today, Metrolinx’s president and chief executive officer Phil Verster issued this statement:

“We had expected the Eglinton Crosstown LRT to be fully built, thoroughly tested, and in service this fall in accordance with our project agreement with Crosslinx Transit Solutions, the construction consortium responsible for building the project.

“Unfortunately, while progress has been made, Crosslinx Transit Solutions have fallen behind schedule, are unable to finalize construction and testing, and therefore the system will not be operational on this timeline.

“We know construction has been difficult for commuters, communities, and businesses along the Eglinton corridor. We are doing everything to hold Crosslinx Transit Solutions accountable and to redouble efforts to meet their commitments and complete the work quickly so we can welcome riders onto a complete, tested, and fully operational Eglinton Crosstown LRT as soon as possible.”

The TTC is closing Line 1 Yonge - University subway between Finch and St Clair stations Saturday, September 24 and Sunday, September 25. Line 1 subway trains operate only between Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and St Clair stations those days.

Shuttle buses partially replace subway service. The buses drop off or pick up passengers at stops near each station on the closed section of the line. TTC staff are available in each to station to direct you to the shuttle-bus boarding and offloading locations.

(Or, consider a shuttle-bus alternative.)

Most stations on this section of Line 1 remain open, so you can buy fares or connect to TTC buses and Line 4 Sheppard subway trains or to GO Transit and York Region Transit buses. However, North York Centre Station is closed.

Note also that the TTC is closing exits / entrances at two other stations:

  • at York Mills Station, the Old York Mills Road exit / entrance is closed. Use the other station entrances in the York Mills Centre and the Yonge Corporate Centre or at the corner of Yonge Street and Wilson Avenue.
  • at Lawrence Station, the automatic exits / entrances at Ranleigh and Bedford Park Avenues are also closed. Enter the subway at the entrance on Yonge Street at Lawrence Avenues East and West.

While this section of Line 1 is closed, TTC crews are installing the Automatic Train Control (ATC) signal system.

The TTC says that “The existing signals, relays, wiring and cabling equipment, much of which is over 60 years old, need replacing as their failure significantly impacts service. Once Automatic Train Control is fully installed and operational, [passengers] will see improved frequency of subway service, less crowding and greater reliability of the signal system.”

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 ATC signal upgrades.”


The TTC is closing this part of Line 1 at least once during October:

  • Monday, October 17 until Thursday, October 20 — Finch to St Clair — close early — track work.
