Sheppard subway closes early, starting September 7



Updated: September 5, 6:25 a.m.


The TTC will close the 4 Sheppard Subway at 10 p.m. for three weeks, starting Sunday, September 7.

The TTC will close the subway early Sunday-to-Thursday evenings at 10 p.m. until Thursday, September 25 to test the new speed control system on the line. The speed control system will regulate the speed of trains as they travel along the line and make sure that they obey the signal system. The subway will operate with normal hours on Friday and Saturday evenings.

The TTC will increase bus service on the 85 Sheppard East route each evening that it closes the subway early. The extra buses will operate between Don Mills Road and the Sheppard — Yonge Station. Buses will arrive at all stops along Sheppard Avenue East west of Don Mills Road every three to five minutes.

The buses will pick you up and drop you off on the street beside Leslie, Bessarion and Bayview subway stations. They won’t enter the bus terminal at Leslie Station. On Monday-to-Thursday evenings, you’ll need a paper transfer ticket to change between 85 Sheppard East buses and the 10:23 p.m. southbound or 10:25 p.m. northbound buses operating on the 51 Leslie route. (Buses don’t operate along the 51 Leslie route on Sundays.)

From 10 p.m. until 12:30 p.m., Mondays to Fridays, Sundays and holidays, you can continue to transfer between the 85 Sheppard East buses and the 1 Yonge — University — Spadina Subway trains at Sheppard — Yonge Station.

After 12:30 p.m., Mondays to Fridays, Sundays and holidays, the TTC is also closing the Yonge line and replacing it with buses, too. You will likely need a paper transfer ticket to transfer between buses replacing both subway lines at Yonge Street and Sheppard Avenue.
