No subway service, March 30, 31: Woodbine to St George



2024 - 03-30 - Woodbine to St George.jpg

The TTC is closing Line 2 Bloor - Danforth between Woodbine and St George stations Saturday, March 30 and Easter, Sunday, March 31. Line 2 subway trains operate only between Kennedy and Woodbine stations and between Kipling and St George stations those days.

Shuttle buses partially replace Line 2 service. The buses drop off or pick up passengers on the street near all stations on the closed section of the line. TTC staff are available at each station to direct you to shuttle-bus stops.

Most stations remain open so you can pay fares or connect with TTC buses, streetcars and Line 1 Yonge - University trains. However, Greenwood, Chester, Sherbourne and Bay stations are closed.

Although all shuttle buses are accessible, Wheel-Trans is also available from all stations. Ask any TTC staff member for information about Wheel-Trans frequency and stops.

While this section of Line 2 is closed, TTC crews are maintaining the tracks and installing a new rail switch between Chester and Broadview stations. The TTC has imposed a reduced speed zone in this part of Line 2.

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.”

The TTC is closing this part of Line 2 at least once more during April:

  • Monday, April 15 until until Thursday, **April 18 — close early — track work.
