All day Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11, the TTC is closing the 2 Bloor - Danforth line between Broadview and St George stations, as its crews maintain and repair the tracks on this section of the line and City of Toronto contractors continue upgrading the Prince Edward Viaduct. All Line 2 trains operate between Kennedy and Broadview stations and between Kipling and St George stations that day.

It’s replacing subway service with shuttle buses between the two stations. The shuttle buses start and end their trips in the bus terminals at Broadview and St George Stations, then operate along Danforth Avenue, the Prince Edward Viaduct and Bloor Streets East and West. They drop off or pick up passengers at the intersections nearest to subway stations:

  • at Castle Frank Road, Sherbourne, Yonge and Bay Streets.

Bay Station will be closed. All other stations remain open so you can buy fares or connect with buses and streetcars.

If you need accessible transportation, Wheel-Trans buses also operate between Broadview and St George stations. You can ask for the Wheel-Trans bus by speaking with a supervisor at these stations.


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 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. Consider boarding buses or streetcars east or west of the closure to by-pass the crowds, if you’re traveling to and from downtown.

  • ride streetcars operating along the 504 King route from Dundas West or Broadview stations. Connect with the 1 Yonge - University line at St Andrew or King stations.
  • ride streetcars operating along the 505 Dundas route from Dundas West or Broadview stations. Connect with the 1 Yonge - University line at St Patrick or Dundas stations.
  • ride streetcars operating along the 506 Carlton route from Main Street Station. Connect with the 1 Yonge - University line at Queen’s Park or College stations.
  • ride buses operating along the 94 Wellesley route at Ossington Station. Connect with the 1 Yonge - University line at Wellesley Station.

The TTC has already closed this section of the subway twice before this year:

It plans to close this section of the subway line three more times twice more this year:

  • Saturday, July 22 and Sunday, July 23 - City work on Prince Edward Viaduct and TTC maintenance;
  • Saturday, August 26 and Sunday, August 27 - City work on Prince Edward Viaduct; and
  • Saturday, October 7 and Sunday, October 8 and Thanksgiving, Monday, October 9 - City work on Prince Edward Viaduct and TTC maintenance.
