No TTC Line 3 Scarborough service, August 27



Line3.jpg

The TTC is closing all of Line 3 Scarborough this Sunday, August 27. Shuttle buses operate on nearby streets to replace the rapid transit line. The buses stop at all stations along the line between McCowan and Kennedy Stations.

McCowan, Ellesmere and Midland stations are closed this weekend. You may buy fares at Kennedy, Lawrence East or Scarborough Centre stations.

Wheel-Trans buses operate between Scarborough Centre and Kennedy stations. Ask any TTC staff member for Wheel-Trans accessible service.

While the line is closed, TTC crews are maintaining the tracks and signals on the line. The TTC continues its program of rehabilitating Line 3 tracks and vehicles to provide a more reliable and comfortable service over the next 10 years. It will close the line when it opens the extension of Line 2 Bloor - Danforth to Scarborough Centre.

TTC track staff are also replacing the power rail between Lawrence East and Ellesmere stations. Crews start working “around-the-clock” shortly after Saturday rapid-transit service ends to make sure they finish working before Monday service starts. They’ll use a variety of equipment, including work cars, hand-held power tools, rail saws, grinders and hammer drills. Expect noise.

Regular service along the line resumes Monday, August 28.


The TTC previously closed the line for maintenance earlier this year:

The TTC has not scheduled any more weekend closures for the line this year.


Line 3 opened March 24, 1986, so the tracks, stations and vehicles are now more than 31 years old.
