No Scarborough line service, June 25, 26


The TTC is closing the 3 Scarborough rapid transit line this Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26. While the line is closed, TTC crews are rehabilitating the tracks on the line to make the service more reliable.

Buses replace service along the entire line between McCowan and Kennedy stations, stopping at all stations along the way. You can also exit the buses at other transit stops if you ask the drivers to stop. Collector booths at all Line 3 stations remain open so you can buy TTC fares.

PRESTO fare-card users must board by the front door and pay their fares with cash, since the TTC has not yet equipped all buses with PRESTO devices.

Wheel-Trans vehicles will be available if you need accessible transit between Scarborough Centre and McCowan stations.

Regular service resumes Monday, June 27.

This is the only occasion that the TTC plans to close the line this year.

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 the RT 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 operating along these routes, instead of the shuttles:

  • 9 Bellamy between Scarborough Centre, McCowan and Warden Stations.
  • 16 McCowan between Scarborough Centre, McCowan and Warden Stations.
  • 21 Brimley between Scarborough Centre and Kennedy Stations.
  • 43B Kennedy via Progress between Scarborough Centre and Kennedy Stations.
  • 57 Midland between Midland and Kennedy Stations.

If you pay your fare with tickets, tokens or cash, pick up a paper transfer when you pay your fare, if you plan to connect with buses at McCowan and Midland Stations.
