Riders can expect another interruption to subway service, but there is a silver lining.
There’s good news and bad news for TTC users this weekend. The good news is that the 511 Bathurst streetcar route, which has been serviced by buses since September, is going to be a real streetcar line again starting on Sunday, November 24. The reason for the temporary change was track work. The TTC was readying Bathurst Street for the arrival of its new fleet of low-floor streetcars. (The new vehicles are expected to start servicing the route by mid-2014.)
The bad news is that, yet again, a portion of the University subway line is going to be closed on Saturday and Sunday. There will be no service between St. Andrew and Union stations, so construction crews can work on Union Station’s new second subway platform. Regular service is expected to resume on Monday, November 25 at 6 a.m.
