ttc subway closure

Major TTC subway closures in Toronto this weekend

It's going to be a painful ride for many TTC subway riders this weekend, as major closures will shut down portions of Line 1 and 2. On the bright side, these are the last scheduled closures for the year, as the TTC mercifully accommodates holiday shoppers on subsequent weekends through December.

The more significant of this weekend's closures takes place on Line 2. There will be no subway service between Pape and St. George stations on December 3 and 4 due to track work. Shuttle buses will run along Bloor and the Danforth in replacement service, which also means that parking restrictions will take place along the route.

The second closure takes place on Line 1, but only involves one station. There will be no service between Wilson and Downsview this weekend for signal upgrades. Shuttle buses will operate between the stations, which will still be open for bus connections throughout the closure.

One additional thing to note is that the TTC's shuttle buses are some of the last to get PRESTO car readers, so if you're forced to travel along the affected areas, it's recommended that you bring backup fare if you're a PRESTO user.
