No subway service, May 7 and 8:
Jane to Bathurst


The TTC is upgrading the tracks on the 2 Bloor - Danforth subway line this weekend, so it’s closing the line between Jane and Bathurst stations.

All day Saturday, May 7 and Sunday, May 8, Line 2 trains operate between Kipling and Jane stations and between Kennedy and Bathurst stations.

More than 45 articulated (“bendy”) shuttle buses replace subway service between Jane and Bathurst. The buses operate along Bloor Street West, stopping only at the intersections nearest to subway stations along the route.

Jane, Runnymede, High Park, Keele, Dundas West, Lansdowne, Dufferin, Ossington, Christie and Bathurst stations are open, so you can connect with buses and streetcars or buy tokens, tickets or passes.

If you need a station with an elevator, Wheel-Trans buses operate between Jane and Bathurst stations. You can speak to a TTC supervisor at these two stations to ask for a Wheel-Trans bus.

This is the second, and last, closure of this section of Line 2 this year. (The TTC previously closed this part of the line Saturday, April 9 and Sunday, April 10.) By the end of this weekend, TTC crews will have:

  • installed 1250 metres (4,100 feet) of rail;
  • installed 52 rail ties, resulting in a smoother ride;
  • re-insulated 290 metres (950 feet) of track;
  • installed 600 plates between High Park and Keele stations to reduce vibration and noise from passing trains;
  • upgraded track circuits between Lansdowne and Keele stations;
  • replaced signal relays; and
  • installed platform tile at Lansdowne and Dundas West stations

between Jane and Bathurst Stations.

Regular subway service resumes Monday, May 9.

To reduce congestion and help improve travel times for all road users on Bloor Street West — including the shuttle buses — this weekend, the City of Toronto is restricting parking on both sides of the street between Jane and Bathurst streets. The parking restrictions are in effect from 3:30 a.m. Saturday until 12:01 a.m. Monday.

Shuttle-bus alternatives

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:

  • 26 Dupont buses between Jane and St George Stations;
  • 94 Wellesley buses between Ossington and Castle Frank Stations; and
  • 504 King streetcars between Dundas West and Broadview stations.

Maintaining subway infrastructure in a state-of-good-repair is important in keeping the transit system safe and reliable. While the TTC does much of its maintenance work after subway service ends each night, it continues to require closing the subway weekends to improve infrastructure and signals, such as automatic train control. One weekend of work when the subway is closed equals about five weeks of nightly work. The TTC appreciates your patience and understanding.
