No subway service, September 24 and 25:
Bloor to Osgoode



BY_to_Osgoode.jpg This weekend, Saturday, September 24 and Sunday, September 25, the TTC is closing the 1 Yonge - University line between Bloor and Osgoode stations, as crews complete track and other maintenance work. All Line 1 trains operate only between Finch and Bloor Stations and between Downsview and Osgoode Stations.

While this section of the line is closed, the TTC is providing shuttle buses to replace subway service. Shuttle buses operate frequently between Rosedale and Osgoode stations, stopping on Yonge Street near all stations south of Rosedale and on University Avenue near St Andrew and Osgoode stations.

Shuttle buses do not directly serve Union Station during this closure. Shuttle buses drop off southbound passengers on Wellington Street West at Bay Street — one block north of Union — before continuing westward to St Andrew and Osgoode stations. Buses pick up passengers heading northbound toward Bloor Station on King Street West at Bay Street — two blocks north.

PRESTO fare-card devices are not yet available on all shuttle buses. Carry tokens, tickets or cash, in case the vehicle that arrives at your stop is not yet PRESTO-equipped.

If you travel with a wheel-chair or other mobility device or require more accessible service, Wheel-Trans vehicles also operate between Bloor and Osgoode stations. Ask any TTC staff member for Wheel-Trans service.


Traveling to the area of Union Station

You have several options if you want to travel by public transit to access Union Station or attend this weekend’s Toronto Blue Jays and World Cup of Hockey events:

  1. After the games, the TTC is operating extra shuttle buses.
  2. It’s also adding more streetcars along the 510 Spadina route. The cars start and end their trips in the Union Station streetcar loop.
  3. You can also reach Union Station aboard UP Express trains or GO Transit trains along the 01 Lakeshore West or 09 Lakeshore East lines.

Shuttle bus alternatives

Shuttle buses are frequent, but they are crowded. Consider these less frequent, but, perhaps, less stressful, alternatives to travel to and from downtown.

  1. Ride the University branch of Line 1 and exit further north than usually:
  • at Queen’s Park Station. Board streetcars operating along the 506 Carlton route to travel to the area of College Station.
  • at St Patrick Station. Board streetcars operating along the 505 Dundas route to travel to the area of Dundas Station.
  • at Osgoode Station. Board streetcars operating along the 501 Queen route to travel to the area of Queen Station.
  1. If you usually connect to Line 1 from the 2 Bloor - Danforth subway, exit Line 2 further east or west than usually:
  • at Main Street Station. Board streetcars operating along the 506 Carlton route to travel to the area of College Station.
  • at Broadview or Dundas West stations. Board streetcars operating along the 504 King route to travel to the area of King Station.
  • at Broadview or Dundas West stations. Board streetcars operating along the 505 Dundas route to travel to the area of Dundas Station.
  • at Ossington Station. Board buses operating along the 94 Wellesley route to travel to the area of Wellesley Station.

The only other time this year that the TTC closed this section of the subway system was Saturday, August 6, when it closed the University branch between St George and Union stations. It has not scheduled any other closures of this part of Line 1 (this year).
