No subway service, Kipling to Jane: July 11, 12


The TTC is closing Line 2 Bloor - Danforth between Kipling and Jane Stations all day Saturday, July 11 and Sunday, July 12. Line 2 subway trains operate only between Jane and Kennedy Stations those days.

Frequent shuttle buses partially replace subway service. The buses operate to and from the station terminals at Kipling and Jane Stations, stopping on Bloor Street West near all other stations on the closed section of the line. TTC staff will be available to direct passengers to shuttle-bus stops.

All stations remain open so you can pay fares and connect with TTC buses. However, the Grenview Boulevard entrance / exit at Royal York Station will be closed.

Wheel-Trans is available from all closed stations if you need accessible service. Ask any TTC customer-service team member for directions to Wheel-Trans stops.

While this section of Line 2 is closed, TTC crews are maintaining the tracks. 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 [signal] upgrades.”

Shortly after service ends Friday, July 10, crews and work-cars start arriving between Kipling and Royal York stations to conduct nightly maintenance work. They finish track and work-cars clear the area before Line 2 subway service resumes Monday, July 13 morning.

Although crews may work in the tunnel, they mostly work in open-air sections:

  • Kipling to Islington - tamping ballast (gravel); and
  • East of Kipling Station near the Kipling bridge - replacing switches.

Crews may use a variety of equipment to complete the project, including subway work-cars, hand-held power tools, rail saws, grinders and drills. Expect noise.
