From Monday, September 20 until Thursday, September 23, the TTC is closing Line 1 Yonge - University subway between Eglinton and King stations earlier than usually. Line 1 subway trains operate only between Finch and Eglinton stations and between Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and King stations after 11 p.m. those nights.

Shuttle buses partly replace subway service. The buses mostly operate along Yonge Street, dropping off or picking up passengers at stops on the street near all stations on the closed section of the line.

(Or, consider a shuttle-bus alternative.)

Most stations on this section of Line 1 remain open so you can pay fares or connect with TTC buses and streetcars or Line 2 Bloor - Danforth trains. However, Summerhill, College and Queen stations are closed.

King Station is not yet an accessible station. If you’re travelling southbound along this part of Line 1 and need an accessible connection, exit the train at Queen Station and ask any TTC customer service employee for help.

While this section of the subway 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 twice more in September:

  • Saturday, September 25 and Sunday, September 26 - Lawrence to St Clair - Metrolinx construction of the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit line; maintenance.
  • Monday, September 27 until Thursday, September 30 - Eglinton to King - close early - maintenance.

  • Sunday, August 22 - Sheppard - Yonge to Bloor - ATC installation and testing.

2021 - 09-20 - Vaughan Metropolitan Centre to Pioneer Village.jpg

Late nights Monday, September 20 until Thursday, September 23, Line 1 Yonge - University subway trains in both directions operate along the southbound tracks only between Vaughan Metropolitan and Pioneer Village stations, while TTC crews repair a leak on the northbound tracks. Regular service resumes by 6 a.m. each morning.

(Since the single-track operation occurs after midnight each night, technically, the closure is from Tuesday, September 21 until Friday, September 24.)

During single-track operation, both south- and northbound trains alternate along the southbound tracks.

You must board northbound trains on the southbound platforms at Pioneer Village and Highway 407 stations. You may also have to wait for trains longer than usually.


The TTC is closing this section of Line 1 once more in September:

  • Monday, September 27 until Thursday, September 30 - Vaughan Metropolitan Centre to Pioneer Village - Single-track operation after midnight.

The Films of Richard Glaze - Trailer Announces Successful Digitization of 2 hours, 30-plus Minutes of Material

We are very proud to announce that the mile of 16mm film footage shot by Richard Glaze during the late 1950s and the early-to-mid 1970s was successfully digitized by Frame Discreet, who have done a tremendous job cleaning up and colour correcting the film. The scanning has uncovered a stunning array of classic footage from 50-70 years ago that we and the Halton County Railway Museum will be uploading to our YouTube Channels. There's a lot to go through, so it may take a little time for all of the material to be made public, but in the meantime, we here at Transit Toronto are thanking the Kickstarter supporters who raised over $7,500 for this project, as well as the rest of you, with this movie trailer highlighting some of the material uncovered:

The video will debut Friday at 9:00 a.m. EDT.

This project could not have been done without the help of a lot of people, and we'd like to thank Transit Toronto videographer Damian Baranowski, the manager of the Streetcar Museum YouTube Channel Trever Parkins-Sciberras, Transit activist and historian Steve Munro, Transit Toronto News manager Robert MacKenzie and, of course, all of the people who promoted our Kickstarter campaign and the people who pledged their support, including:

At the Executive Producer Level:

  • Eric Bow

At the Associate Producer Level:

  • Andrew G. Clarkson, Brad O'Brien, Darwin O'Connor, David Kappler-Burch, Edward M. Brinda, Eric Logan, Isaac Morland, J. H. Raum, Jason Fidalgo, Leonid Elbert, Lorne Landry, Mark R. Francis, Michael Taylor, Neil Jenkins, Steve Munro, Tim van Putten, Tim Bethune

At the Named Supporter Level

  • Alan Fox, Andrew Noble, Anne-Marie Marais, Blair Krupchyn @ 5151photography, Chris Drew, Christiaan Piller, D. Parberry, Dennis Kwok, Dmitri Tchigvintsev, Ernest Fu, Fred W Johnson, Gerry Wimmer, Howard Levine, Jared, Jon Belanger, Kevin Nicol, Lukas Valentich, Mark Pompeo, Paul Croft, Randylenn, Rob Mcdonald, Robert Lubinski, Robert Mackenzie, Roy Schulze, Simon Margolis, Steven Olsen, Taylor Paige, Walter Lis, Zaki Husain

Thanks again to everyone.

As for the next round of fundraising to digitize the remaining two-thirds of Richard's archive, we are working with the Halton County Radial Railway Museum to set something up that we hope all rail and transit fans can contribute to. This different but familiar venue may be an incentive to get people who might be intimidated by Kickstarter to contribute. The details are still being worked out so, as we say in the trailer, stay tuned.
