Snow and Ice Shut Down the SRT

It’s another doozy of a winter day for Toronto: a snowfall warning is in effect, and we’re expected to get up to 15 centimetres of the stuff before it starts tapering off in the late afternoon. In order to get ready for the afternoon commute, which is sure to be a messy one, the TTC will be shutting down the Scarborough RT from 12:30 p.m. until 3 p.m. so that crews can clear away ice and snow. The TTC will be running 24 shuttle buses between Kennedy and McCowan stations while the SRT is out of service.
