Reminder: No Spadina subway service this weekend
north of Lawrence West Station



The TTC is continuing its program of maintaining the subway tracks on weekends, this Saturday and Sunday, September 18 and 19.

You’ll have to board a bus if you want to travel between Downsview and Lawrence West Stations this weekend.

All 1 Yonge - University - Spadina subway trains operate between Lawrence West and Finch Station only from about 5:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 18 until 1:30 a.m. Sunday, September 19 and from about 9 a.m. on Sunday until 12:30 a.m. on Monday, September 20. (From about 12:30 until 1:30 a.m. Monday, as the TTC project to repair the tunnels north of Eglinton Station continues, trains operate between Lawrence West and Eglinton Stations only.)

Regular service along the entire 1 Yonge - University - Spadina line resumes at 5:30 a.m. Monday.

Frequent, accessible buses operate between Downsview and Lawrence West Stations while the subway is closed.

Watch for signs and listen to public service announcements to find out where you can board the buses in each station. The TTC is also assigning extra staff to Downsview, Wilson, Yorkdale and Lawrence West Stations to help direct passengers to where they want to go. Remember to pick up a paper transfer ticket when you pay your fare, if you want to connect between the subway shuttle bus and buses serving the 47 Lansdowne route at Yorkdale Station.

Lawrence West is not an accessible station, so, for passengers who can’t use conventional transit services, the TTC is operating accessible WheelTrans buses to transport passengers between Lawrence West and the next accessible subway station to the south — Eglinton West. Passengers using wheelchairs or other mobility devices should exit the subway at Eglinton West to continue their trip further northwards.

The WheelTrans buses also drop off and pick up passengers at Glencairn Station. You’ll need a paper transfer if you want to connect with buses operating along the 14 Glencairn route at Glencairn Station.


The TTC previously closed the subway between Downsview and Lawrence West Station over the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, July 24 and 25.
