Subway opens late, April 11: Broadview to St George



2021 - 04-11 - Broadview to St George.jpg

The TTC is delaying the start of service along Line 2 Bloor - Danforth between Broadview and St George stations this Sunday, April 11. All Line 2 trains operate only between Kennedy and Broadview stations and between Kipling and St George stations before noon that day.

Shuttle buses partially replace subway service between the two stations, stopping on the street near stations on the closed section of the line.

(Or, consider a shuttle bus alternative.)

Most stations on the closed section of Line 2 remain open so you can pay for fares or connect with buses, streetcars and Line 1 Yonge - University subway trains. However, Sherbourne and Bay stations are closed before noon.

Although shuttle buses are accessible, Wheel-Trans service is also available between Broadview and St George stations. Ask staff at these stations for in information about Wheel-Trans service.


While this section of Line 2 is closed, City of Toronto contractors work under the Prince Edward Viaduct to replace beams. TTC crews also take advantage of the closure to maintain the tracks.


Shuttle buses

(We’ve based this part of the post on information the TTC supplied during previous occasions that it closed the subway between Broadview and St George.)

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.


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

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