November 1, 2



YUS-Eglinton_to_Bloo.jpg

The TTC is canceling subway service along the 1 Yonge - University - Spadina line between Eglinton and Bloor Stations this weekend, Saturday, November 1 and Sunday, November 2.

Frequent, accessible buses replace the trains, serving the bus terminal at Eglinton Station and then stopping to drop off or pick up passengers at stops on Yonge Street near all other stations along this section of the line. (Unofficially, the buses likely start and end their trips in the bus terminal at Wellesley Station.)

All trains serving the line will operate between Finch and Eglinton Stations and between Downsview and Bloor Stations only.

Davisville, St Clair and Rosedale stations remain open for passengers connecting with TTC buses and streetcars. Summerhill Station will be closed. Davisville, St Clair and Rosedale stations remain open for passengers buying fares Saturday, but only St Clair and Rosedale stations remain open for fare transactions Sunday. Wheel-Trans buses will be available both days to accommodate passengers who use wheelchairs, scooters and other mobility aids.

TTC crews will upgrade the tracks while the subway is closed, working on a project to repair tracks and switches at Davisville Station.

They’ll also work on a long-term project to replace signals along the line. The TTC must replace its signals, relays, wiring and cabling equipment, much of which is nearly 60 years old, since their frequent failure significantly impacts service. The TTC says that “This necessary signal and track work will result in a more reliable service.”

Regular subway service resumes Monday, November 3.


The TTC previously closed the line between the same two stations to work on one or both of the two projects Saturday, May 31, Saturday, August 23 and Sunday, August 24 and Saturday, October 18 and Sunday, October 19. It will again close the same section of the line next Saturday, November 8 and Sunday, November 9.

It also closed the line between Lawrence and Bloor Stations Saturday, September 6 and Sunday, September 7.


Plan your trips on the subway ahead of time this Saturday and Sunday to avoid stress and crowds, if you’re intending to travel by TTC between Eglinton and Bloor. Leave extra time in your schedule and expect longer traveling times those days.

While shuttle buses between the two stations will operate frequently, they will be crowded.

Consider traveling along the University - Spadina branch, instead of the Yonge branch, this weekend, when traveling to and from downtown Toronto and avoid the shuttle buses entirely.

Ride buses or streetcars on routes serving streets north or south of the closure to reach stations on the University - Spadina branch, instead of boarding the subway on the Yonge branch:
