TTC transit control continues to ask subway operators to reduce their speed through certain areas of the subway system as a safety precaution due to crews at track level performing ongoing maintenance on the tracks. These reduced speed zones mean that trains travel more slowly than normally in the area.

Here’s where reduced speed zones are still in effect on Lines 1 and 2:

  • Line 1 Yonge - University
  • Southbound between St Andrew and Union stations;
  • Northbound between Union and King stations; and
  • Northbound between York Mills and Sheppard - Yonge stations.
  • Line 2 Bloor -Danforth:
  • Eastbound between Keele and Dundas West stations;
  • Eastbound between Castle Frank and Chester stations;
  • Westbound between Castle Frank and Broadview stations; and
  • Westbound between Dundas West and Keele stations.

At reduced speeds, trains are moving at between 15 and 25 kilometres per hour (km/h), instead of normal speeds of 40 to 50 km/h.
