All day Saturday, January 23 and Sunday, January 24, the TTC is closing Line 1 Yonge - University subway between Finch and St Clair stations. Line 1 trains operate only between St Clair and Vaughan Metropolitan Centre stations those days.

Shuttle buses partly replace subway service. The buses start and end their trips in the bus terminals at Finch and St Clair stations, but also drop off or pick up passengers on the street near the other sections on this part of the line.

(Or, consider a shuttle-bus alternative)

Most stations on the closed section of Line 1 remain open so you can pay fares or connect with TTC buses, streetcars and Line 4 Sheppard trains. However, North York Centre Station is closed.

Note also that the TTC is closing exits / entrances at other stations:

  • at Sheppard - Yonge Station, the automatic exits / entrances at Yonge Street and Poyntz Avenue and at Yonge Street and Anndale Drive are closed. Use other station entrances.
  • at York Mills Station, the Old York Mills Road exit / entrance is closed. Use the other station entrances in the York Mills Centre and the Yonge Corporate Centre or at the corner of Yonge Street and Wilson Avenue.
  • at Lawrence Station, the automatic entrances / exits at Ranleigh Avenue and Bedford Park Avenue are closed. Use the entrances at Yonge Street and Lawrence Avenue.

Although all shuttle buses are accessible, Wheel-Trans service is also available from all stations. Ask TTC staff in each station for information about Wheel-Trans.

While this section of Line 1 is closed, Metrolinx contractors work on the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit line. TTC crews will take advantage of the closure to install the automatic train control (ATC) signalling system in the subway corridor.

The TTC says that “The existing signals, relays, wiring and cabling equipment, much of which is over 60 years old, need replacing as their failure significantly impacts service. Once Automatic Train Control is fully installed and operational, [passengers] will see improved frequency of subway service, less crowding and greater reliability of the signal system.”

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 as well as ATC signal upgrades.”


The TTC is closing this section of Line 1 three more times in January and February:

  • Monday, January 25 until Thursday, January 28 — Finch to Sheppard - Yonge — close early — signal upgrades.
  • Saturday, February 6 and Sunday, February 7 — Eglinton to Union — ATC signal installation.
  • Monday, February 8 until Thursday, February 11 — Finch to Eglinton — close early — tunnel and signal upgrades.
  • Tuesday, February 16 until Thursday, February 18 — Finch to Eglinton — close early — tunnel and signal upgrades.
  • Monday, February 22 until Thursday, February 25 — Finch to Eglinton — close early — tunnel and signal upgrades.
  • Saturday, February 27 and Sunday, February 28 — Finch to St Clair — Eglinton Crosstown LRT construction and ATC signal installation.

During the province-wide shutdown due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, public health agencies have recommended limiting travel to essential trips only.

Starting Saturday, January 23, Union Pearson express trains temporarily operate hourly during times when ridership is typically low. Trains continue to operate every 30 minutes during other times. UPX is also shortening the hours of service each day.


Trains leave Union Station at 4:55 a.m. Mondays to Fridays, 5:30 a.m. and every 30 minutes until 9 a.m., then hourly until 3 p.m., every 30 minutes until 8 p.m., then 9 and 10 p.m.

Starting Saturday, January 23, GO Transit is making temporary service changes that, it says, adapt to Government of Ontario calls to stay home when possible while balancing the need to provide a lifeline transit service for essential travellers.

Buses replace trains along the Barrie, Kitchener and Stouffville lines Monday-to-Friday evenings and all day Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. According to GO’s parent company, Metrolinx, these changes “make better use of resources while demand is low.”

Even though Ontario has announced state of emergency, GO Transit continues to operate — public transit is an essential service - but public health guidelines recommend limiting travel to essential trips only.

Throughout the fight against COVID-19, Metrolinx has constantly adjusted schedules and activities to create a sustainable service plan that would continue to deliver lifeline transit for essential workers. That included reducing service last March and introducing several safety measures to keep passengers safe while on vehicles and at stations.

Last September, GO resumed some services, as trends and demands again shifted, just as some people temporarily returned to work and outings.

The latest changes result from increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases in Ontario, while overall ridership is down by more than 90 per cent.

Metrolinx officials say as Ontario starts to recover, and more passengers return to GO, it will again adjust service and reinstate full schedules to meet that demand.


Port Credit GO Station: Platform construction, starting January 18

Metrolinx is enhancing safety features at Port Credit GO Station, as part of the GO Expansion Program. During various projects at the station, they’re:

  • installing tactile yellow tiles at the edge of the train platforms (now underway);
  • upgrading elevators that connect the middle platform to the south platform (underway);
  • adding an accessible ramp to the west end of the south platform (underway); and
  • upgrading the accessible ramp to the east end of the south platform (underway).

Starting Monday, January 18, GO Transit contractors are installing tactile yellow tiles on the north edge of the south platform overnight, to remind you how far back to stand.

Tile installation does not affect how you board or exit from trains.

Overnight construction to install platform-edge tiles continues “until later next month”, meaning as late as until February 28.


Since Monday, January 11, GO has closed the south platform elevator, while crews upgrade the device.

  • Use the ramp at the northwest corner of the south parking lot by the passenger pick-up and drop-off areas (or “Kiss and Ride) to get to the south platform.
  • After crews finish upgrading the south platform elevator, they start upgrading the island platform elevator.

Since Thursday, December 2, GO has closed the stairs between the bus loop and the south platform. Contractors are using this space to create a new accessibility ramp beside the stairs. Instead, use the tunnels at the station building to get to the train platforms. You can also use the ramp at the northwest corner of the south parking lot by the by the passenger pick-up and drop-off area (or “Kiss and Ride”) to get to the south platform.

GO is closing the stairs until further notice.

GO has also temporarily removed the PRESTO fare-payment device on the west side of the stairs (between the bus loop and the south platform) until further notice.

GO has also temporarily removed the digital screen displaying trip information and the PRESTO fare-payment device on the east side of the stairs (also between the bus loop and the south platform). Crews will put the machines in place when they finish building the west ramp construction “in spring 2021”, meaning the device is out of service as late as until June 30, 2021.

PRESTO fare-payment devices are available in the station building and on the ramp at the northwest corner of the south parking lot by the Kiss and Ride. Digital screens are available on the train platforms and in the GO station building.


Since Tuesday, August 4 GO has closed 15 parking spaces in the southwest lot near Stavebank Road North, so crews can store construction material for ongoing construction at Port Credit GO.


Since Monday, September 14, GO has been building a new accessible ramp connecting the bus terminal to the south train platform. This temporarily affects how you access buses at the station. The work zone blocks platform 8 in the terminal. MiWay is relocating the stop for northbound buses along the 8 Cawthra route and eastbound buses along the 23 Lakeshore route to platform 5.


Since Tuesday, October 27, crews have been installing tactile yellow safety tiles on the north side of the island platform overnight nightly. The tiles remind passengers how far back to safely stand from the edge of the platform. This will not affect how you board or exit from trains at Port Credit.

When crews have completed the north side of the island platform, they’ll start working on the south side. GO says, “Please be careful around construction equipment until work is complete on the island platform”. Construction continues until “winter 2021”, meaning as late as until March 31.


Metrolinx and GO plan to accommodate more passengers and increase service along the Lakeshore West line, as part of their GO Expansion Program (formerly “regional express rail”).
