The TTC is closing the 1 Yonge - University subway line between Downsview and Wilson stations this weekend, Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11, while crews upgrade the signal system and maintain the tracks.

While this section of the subway is closed, Line 1 trains operate only between Finch and Wilson stations. Shuttle buses replace subway service north of Wilson. Since PRESTO is not yet available on all buses, be sure to carry tokens, tickets or cash in case the bus that picks you up is not yet PRESTO-equipped.

Regular subway service resumes 6 a.m. September 12.

Wheel-Trans buses will be available at Lawrence West Station for passengers who need accessible transit. Northbound passengers needing accessible service should exit the subway at Lawrence West, which has an elevator. You can ask for the Wheel-Trans bus by speaking with a supervisor at Downsview or Lawrence West stations.

Crews are laying as much as 6,400 metres (21,000 feet) of cable for the TTC’s new automatic train control signal system and install other related equipment, including beacons and junction boxes.

The TTC previously closed this part of the subway already this year :

It plans to close this section of the subway line:

  • Saturday, September 17 and Sunday, September 18between Downsview and St George.
  • Saturday, October 8, Sunday, October 9 and Thanksgiving, Monday, October 10between Downsview and Wilson.
  • Saturday, December 3 and Sunday, December 4between Downsview and Wilson.

Subway-replacement shuttle buses

(The TTC has not confirmed routing information. We’ve based this part of the post on information that the TTC has provided during previous closures of this and other nearby sections of the line.)

Southbound buses start their trips in Downsview Station, then proceed:

southward along William R. Allen Road;
west- and southward along Transit Road;
to Wilson Station bus terminal,
ending their trips.

Northbound buses likely reverse the southbound routing.
