Another Scheduled Subway Closure Coming Up This Weekend



Another Scheduled Subway Closure Coming Up This Weekend

Signal work will shut down the subway between Bloor and St. Andrew stations from March 22 to 23.

The need for more signal upgrade work on the Yonge-University-Spadina line means no trains will be running between Bloor and St. Andrew stations this weekend.

The TTC will press 47 shuttle buses into service on Yonge St. between Rosedale and King stations, and over to St. Andrew Station. Union subway station will be closed, so you won’t be able to use it to access the main train station. People looking to get to the Air Canada Centre will have to walk from St. Andrew or King stations, or ride the 6 Bay bus.

Riders can also use the 504 King or 505 Dundas streetcars to travel downtown.

Wheel-Trans buses will be available for those who require accessible transit.

Everything will be back to normal by Monday morning at 6 a.m.

And if you haven’t yet seen it—or if you have, in fact, already seen it but would interested in watching it again because signal systems are interesting and the transit control centre looks like something out of an exciting big-budget action movie—here’s that video the TTC released explaining how signals systems work, how much better new signal systems work, and why it’s important that the subways keep being shut down on weekends.
