No University subway after midnight south of St. George,
June 6 until 10

This week, late-night transit passengers have had to deal with parts of the Yonge section of the 1 Yonge - University - Spadina subway shutting down after midnight. Next week, the Yonge section is open late, but, instead, the TTC is closing the University subway late at night.

The TTC is shutting down the University section of the 1 Yonge - University - Spadina subway between St. George and Union Stations after midnight every day next week so that work crews can grind the rails along this part of the subway line.

(It periodically grinds the rails to improve the ride for passengers.)

Starting at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, June 6 and early every morning at 12:01 a.m. until Thursday, June 10, the TTC is replacing the subway with accessible shuttle buses along Bloor Street West, Queen’s Park, University Avenue and Front Street West between St. George and Union Stations. Regular service resumes each morning on the subway at around 9 a.m. on Sunday and around 5:30 a.m. every other day of the week.

It will close Museum, Queen’s Park, St. Patrick, Osgoode and St. Andrew Stations every morning at 12:01 a.m., but will re-open them for regular morning subway service.

Trains continue to operate along the University - Spadina leg of the subway line between Downsview and St. George Stations after midnight until the end of service around 1:30 a.m. every morning.

Trains continue to operate along the Yonge leg after 12:01 a.m. every night. (The TTC shut down the Yonge subway south of Bloor Station to grind the rails after midnight every night from Sunday, May 30 until Saturday, June 5.)

From the Transit Toronto archives, you can see a gallery of TTC work cars, including rail grinders, and read an article about this equipment by James Bow here.
