Although shuttle buses are accessible, Wheel-Trans is also available at each station on this section of Line 2. Ask TTC staff in each station for information about Wheel-Trans service from the station.

While this section of the subway is closed, TTC crews are preparing for the future re-signalling of Line 2 with automatic train control (ATC).

Starting 11 p.m. Friday, April 12, the TTC is repairing the tracks and concrete on the streetcar right-of-way

  • on College Street between Margueretta Street and Rusholme Road.

Specifically, track crews work on College:

  • at Margueretta Street;

Track repairs on College Street and the resulting TTC detours continue until April 15 (4 a.m.).


The TTC says, “Around-the-clock work is required to ensure the quality installation of new rail and concrete.” Crews set up the work zone shortly after 11 p.m. Friday, April 12, and start milling the concrete. By 7 a.m. Saturday, April 13 they saw-cut concrete, break and remove concrete, replace the old rail with new rail and place new concrete. Work continues Sunday, April 14. They break and remove concrete only from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. each day. After pouring new concrete into the track area, they set it to cure before they can fully reopen the roadway to streetcar and vehicular traffic by 4 a.m. Monday April 15.

“Paid-duty” Toronto Police Service officers or traffic-control personnel will be on-site to help maintain the flow of traffic.

TTC_Reduced Speed Zones_2024-04-11.jpg

TTC transit control continues to ask subway operators to reduce their speed through certain areas of the subway system as a safety precaution due to crews at track level performing ongoing maintenance on the tracks. These reduced speed zones mean that trains travel more slowly than normally in the area.

Here’s where reduced speed zones are still in effect on Lines 1 and 2:

  • Line 1 Yonge - University:
  • Southbound between Wilson and Yorkdale stations; and
  • Northbound between York Mills and Sheppard - Yonge stations.
  • Line 2 Bloor -Danforth:
  • Eastbound between Keele and Dundas West stations;
  • Eastbound between Broadview and Chester stations;
  • Westbound between Chester and Broadview stations; and
  • Westbound between Dundas West and Keele stations.

At reduced speeds, trains are moving at between 15 and 25 kilometres per hour (km/h), instead of normal speeds of 40 to 50 km/h.

Metrolinx continues to upgrade the Stouffville rail corridor as part of the GO Expansion Program.


GO Transit is replacing trains with buses along the 71 Stouffville line Saturday, April 13 and Sunday, April 14 to accommodate Metrolinx construction along the line. GO buses replace trains to travel to and from all stations along the line except Milliken, Agincourt and Kennedy GO stations.

GO buses operate along two branches:

  • the 71E branch between Mount Joy GO Station and Union Station Bus Terminal, stopping at Markham, Centennial and Unionville GO stations; and
  • the 71G branch between Old Elm GO Station and Union terminal, stopping at Stouffville, Mount Joy, Markham, Centennial and Unionville GO stations.

All buses operate express — without stopping — between Unionville and Union.

Board TTC trains and buses to travel to and from Milliken, Agincourt and Kennedy GO stations. York Region Transit buses also drop off or pick up passengers near Milliken.

Metrolinx contractors are building and maintaining tracks on the Stouffville corridor to make sure that trains operate safely and reliably. They are also focussing on updating key infrastructure for the Stouffville GO Expansion. They can only complete this work when trains aren’t operating.


Metrolinx and GO plan to accommodate more passengers and increase service along the Stouffville line, as part of their GO Expansion Program (formerly “regional express rail”).

Metrolinx and its contractors continue upgrading GO Transit’s Barrie line as part of the GO Expansion Program.


Due to construction, GO is cancelling train service along the 65 Barrie line south of Rutherford GO Station Saturday, April 13 and Sunday, April 14. Buses replace the trains, operating between Rutherford and Highway 407 Bus Terminal.

At Rutherford, you can transfer to GO buses to Highway 407 Station, where you can then connect with TTC subway trains along Line 1 Yonge - University to travel to and from downtown Toronto.

GO isn’t operating any Barrie-corridor trains or buses into or out of Downsview Park GO Station and Union Station this weekend.

While the line is closed, Metrolinx contractors are enhancing the signals between Downsview Park GO Station and Union Station. This means trains cannot operate south of Rutherford GO station.

Buses
  • Replacement buses serve passengers between Aurora or Rutherford GO Stations and Highway 407 Bus Terminal. Some buses operate express — with few or no stops.
  • Throughout the weekend, you may have to transfer to a train or bus at Aurora or Rutherford to reach your destination.
  • GO buses along the 68 Barrie / Newmarket / Aurora route operate with regular schedules between Allandale Waterfront and Aurora GO stations.
  • GO buses along the 65 East Gwillimbury / Newmarket / Toronto route operate along three branches this weekend:
  • the 65D branch — between Rutherford GO Station and Highway 407 Bus Terminal;
  • the 65G branch — between Aurora GO Station and Highway 407 Bus Terminal via King City, Maple and Rutherford GO stations; and
  • the 65H branch — between Aurora and Highway 407 — local stops on Wellington Street East in Aurora, then express — without stopping — to Highway 407 terminal.

Metrolinx and GO plan to accommodate more passengers and increase service along the Barrie line, as part of their GO Expansion Program (formerly “regional express rail”).
