Buses replace subway between St. George and Union,
November 13



The TTC is not operating subway trains along the 1 Yonge - University - Spadina line between St. George and Union Stations until 2 p.m. Sunday, November 13.

Instead, it’s providing frequent, accessible buses between between St. George and Union Stations. The buses stop on the street near Museum, Queen’s Park, St. Patrick, Osgoode, St. Andrew and Union Stations.

Subway trains operate between Downsview and St. George Stations and between Finch and Union Stations only.

The TTC is closing this part of the line so that workers can install equipment for its new automatic train control signal system. That system will result in more reliable — and, probably, more frequent — subway service.

If you’re traveling to downtown Toronto Sunday morning, you can ride, instead, southward along the Yonge branch of the subway and then transfer to an east- or westbound streetcar at College, Dundas, Queen or King Stations to continue your trip. At Wellesley Station, you can board a bus operating along the 94 Wellesley bus for an east- or westbound journey.


Although the TTC has not specified the exact route of the buses, they likely operate like this:

From St. George Station, southbound buses proceed:

eastward along Prince Arthur Avenue;
southward along Bedford Road;
eastward along Bloor Street West;
southward along Queen’s Park, Queen’s Park Crescent West and University Avenue; and then
eastward along Front Street West to the regular 72A Pape stop on Front West, east of Bay Street.

From Union Station, northbound buses likely proceed:

from the stop on Front Street West, east of Bay Street, eastward along Front West;
northward along Yonge Street;
eastward along Wellington Street West;
northward along University Avenue, Queen’s Park Crescent East and Queen’s Park;
westward along Bloor Street West;
northward along Bedford Road; and then
westward into St. George Station terminal,
ending their trips.
