No subway service, Finch to Lawrence:
October 22, 23



The TTC is closing the 1 Yonge - University line between Finch and Lawrence station this weekend, as crews maintain the tracks along this section of the line. All Line 1 trains operate only between Lawrence and Downsview Stations Saturday, October 22 and Sunday, October 23.

To replace subway service, the TTC is operating shuttle buses. The buses start and end their trips in Finch and Lawrence station bus terminal. They operate north- and southward along Yonge Street, stopping only at intersections near subway stations.

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

Wheel-Trans buses operate between Finch and Eglinton stations. Speak with any TTC staff member to ask for the service. Northbound passengers requiring an elevator should exit the subway at Eglinton Station to connect with Wheel-Trans service.

The TTC has not previously closed this section of the subway line this year. It does not plan to close it again this year.


Shuttle-bus alternatives

Plan your trips on the subway ahead of time this Saturday and Sunday to avoid stress and crowds. Leave extra time in your schedule and expect longer traveling times those days.

While shuttle buses operate frequently, they will be crowded.

Consider traveling along the University branch, instead of the Yonge branch, this weekend, when traveling to and from downtown Toronto and avoid the shuttle buses entirely.

Ride transit vehicles operating along routes serving east-west streets to reach stations on the University branch, instead of boarding the subway on the Yonge branch:
