The TTC is delaying the start of service along the Line 2 Bloor - Danforth subway between Broadview and St George stations this Sunday, August 225 due City of Toronto bridge work under the Prince Edward Viaduct. All Line 2 trains operate only between Kennedy and Broadview stations and between Kipling and St George stations before noon that day.

The TTC is replacing subway service with shuttle buses between the two stations.

At Broadview Station, buses drop off passengers on Broadview Avenue beside the subway station entrance / exit. They then loop along Broadview, Erindale, Hurndale and Danforth Avenues. The buses pick up passengers on the north side of Danforth, before heading westward toward St George Station.

The shuttle buses 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 all other subway stations on the closed section of the line:

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

At St George Station, buses drop off passengers on St. George Street beside the station entrance / exit. They then loop along St. George, Prince Arthur Avenue and Bedford Road. The buses pick up passengers on the west side of Bedford beside the subway station entrance / exit, before heading eastward toward Broadview Station.

Sherbourne and Bay stations are closed before noon.

If you need accessible transportation, Wheel-Trans buses also operate between Broadview and St George stations. You can ask staff at these stations for Wheel-Trans service.


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 streetcars and buses provide less frequent, less direct, but, perhaps, less stressful alternatives. Consider boarding streetcars or buses east or west of the closure to by-pass the crowds, if you’re traveling to and from downtown.

  • Board streetcars along the 504 King route at Broadview Station. Connect with the Line 1 Yonge - University subway at King or St Andrew stations.
  • Board buses along the 505 Dundas route at Broadview Station. Connect with the Line 1 Yonge - University subway at Dundas or St Patrick stations.
  • Board streetcars along the 506 Carlton route at Main Street Station. Connect with the Line 1 Yonge - University subway at College or Queen’s Park stations.
