The TTC is closing Line 1 Yonge - University subway between St George and St Andrew stations Saturday, January 20 and Sunday, January 21. Line 1 trains operate only between Vaughan Metropolitan and St George stations and between Finch and St Andrew stations those days.

The TTC isn’t operating shuttle buses during the closure, it says, “because of ongoing construction along the route, which will impact the consistency of service for the shuttle buses.”

The TTC is advising passengers travelling downtown to consider boarding streetcars along the 510 Spadina route at Spadina Station and then transfer to east-west streetcars or buses at College Street or Dundas, Queen or King streets west. It’s also encouraging you to consider travelling along the Yonge branch of the route, instead of the University branch.

Most stations on the closed section of the subway remain open so you can buy or pay fares or connect with TTC buses and streetcars. However, Museum, Queen’s Park and St Patrick stations are closed.

Extra standby Wheel-Trans vehicles are available throughout the downtown area. The TTC is also assigning extra staff at all downtown stations to help you find your way.

While this part of the subway line is closed, TTC crews are maintaining and repairing the tracks and upgrading stations. In a report to the Toronto Transit Commission, TTC staff identified work to upgrade Queen’s Park and St. Patrick stations as one of the main reasons for this closure.

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 state-of-good-repair work.”
