Buses replace subway between Eglinton and Bloor Stations,
August 13 and 14

The TTC is not operating subway trains along the Yonge section of the 1 Yonge - University - Spadina subway between Eglinton and Bloor Stations all day Saturday, August 13 and Sunday, August 14.

Trains operate along the line only between Finch and Eglinton Stations and between Downsview and Bloor Stations this weekend.

Frequent, accessible buses drop off and pick up passengers inside Eglinton Station bus terminal and at stops on Yonge Street beside Davisville, St. Clair, Summerhill, Rosedale and Bloor Stations.

While the subway is closed, TTC crews are installing a new crossover south of St. Clair Station under Rosehill Avenue. The crossover will allow trains to move from one track to another, letting the TTC short-turn trains during an emergency further along the line.

The TTC recently installed a crossover south of College Station (roughly beneath the intersection of Yonge and Gerrard Streets), closing the subway during the weekends of Saturday, January 29 and Sunday, January 30, Saturday, February 26 and Sunday, February 27 and Saturday, March 26 and Sunday, March 27.

It plans to also install another crossover south of King Station over the next year. The TTC removed all three of these manually operated crossovers many years ago to eliminate maintenance requirements, but now it’s re-installing and automating them to allow emergency shutdowns to affect a shorter part of the line when they occur.

Regular subway service resumes Monday, August 15.
