Subway closes early: Pape to St George,
11 p.m. April 30


The TTC is closing the 2 Bloor - Danforth subway line between Pape and St George stations at 11 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, April 30 due to track work on the Prince Edward Viaduct. All Line 2 trains operate between Kennedy and Pape stations and between Kipling and St George station after 11 p.m. that day.

It’s replacing subway service with shuttle buses between the two stations. The shuttle buses start and end their trips in the bus terminals at Pape and St George Stations, then operate along Danforth Avenue, the Prince Edward Viaduct and Bloor Streets East and West. They drop off or pick up passengers at the intersections nearest to subway stations:

  • at Chester and Broadview Avenues, Castle Frank Road, Sherbourne, Yonge and Bay Streets.

All subway stations on the closed section of Line 2 remain open for you to buy tickets, tokens and passes or to connect with buses and streetcars.

If you need accessible transportation, Wheel-Trans buses also operate between Pape and St George stations. You can ask for the Wheel-Trans bus by speaking with a supervisor at these stations.

While this section of the subway is closed, TTC crews are replacing a track beam on the viaduct between Broadview and Castle Frank stations.

They normally complete this work Sunday mornings, requiring the subway to open late. The TTC is closing the subway early this time to avoid inconveniencing those participating in, and watching, the GoodLife Fitness Toronto Marathon Sunday morning.

Regular subway service resume 8 a.m. Sunday, May 1.

Shuttle-bus alternatives

One way that you can reduce the impact of the closure is by planning ahead, leaving earlier than usually and giving yourself more time to get to where you’re going.

Although shuttle buses replacing subway service will be frequent, they may also be crowded.

Regular TTC buses and streetcars provide less frequent, less direct, but, perhaps, less stressful alternatives. Consider boarding, buses or streetcars east or west of the closure to by-pass the crowds, if you’re traveling to and from downtown.

  • ride streetcars operating along the 504 King route at Dundas West station. Connect with the 1 Yonge - University line at St Andrew or King stations.
  • ride streetcars operating along the 506 Carlton route at Main Street Station. Connect with the 1 Yonge - University line at Queen’s Park or College stations.
  • ride buses operating along the 94 Wellesley route at Ossington Station. Connect with the 1 Yonge - University line at Wellesley Station.

The TTC previously opened this section of the subway late Sunday, April 17.
