The TTC is closing Line 1 Yonge - University between Bloor and St Andrew Stations all day Sunday, May 24. Line 1 subway trains operate only between Finch and Bloor stations and between Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and St Andrew stations that day.

Shuttle buses partly replace subway service. The buses drop off or pick up passengers at stops on the street near each of the subway stations on the closed section of the line. TTC staff will be available at each station to direct you to the nearest shuttle-bus stop.


Wheel-Trans service is also available from each station.


Most stations on the closed section of the subway line remain open so you can pay fares or connect with streetcars, buses and Line 2 Bloor - Danforth subway trains. However, College, Dundas, Queen and King stations are closed.


While this section of Line 1 is closed, TTC crews are installing and testing the automatic train control (ATC) signalling system in the subway corridor.

The TTC says that “The existing signals, relays, wiring and cabling equipment, much of which is over 60 years old, need replacing as their failure significantly impacts service. Once Automatic Train Control is fully installed and operational, customers will see improved frequency of subway service, less crowding and greater reliability of the signal system.”

According to a TTC news release, “While the TTC does most subway maintenance at the conclusion of service each night, it continues to require weekend and early weeknight closures to complete critical infrastructure and ATC upgrades.”
