It was a nightmare commute on the TTC this morning
If you took the TTC this morning, you probably got to work so frustrated you had to take a breather before stepping into the office.
I would have gotten to work faster if I'd walked. Thank you #TTC!— Melanie (@MellieLangie) May 10, 2018
Now, while subway delays in this city aren't uncommon and always seem to strike at the worst possible time — during rush hour — this one is taking a particularly long time to clear, and it took over both subway and streetcar service.
UPDATE: 501 Queen continues to divert eastbound only via Shaw, King, Spadina due to rail problems at Queen and Shaw. Shuttle buses operating between Shaw and University.— Official TTC Tweets (@TTCnotices) May 10, 2018
This morning was, and continues to be, a mess.
Update: Longer than normal travel times southbound between St. Clair West and Union Stations due to the earlier delay at Dundas Station.— Official TTC Tweets (@TTCnotices) May 10, 2018
At 4:19 this morning, @TTCnotices announced that the 501 car along Queen Street would be diverting eastbound via Shaw, King and Spadina because of rail problems at the intersection of Queen and Shaw streets.
Following that, at 6:43 a.m. they tweeted that trains were holding northbound at Dundas station because of a mechanical issue.
Commuters are still watching one, two, three trains full of people go by before they can squeeze on.
Make that four trains...
Many in this city are railing against the TTC for the service this morning.
Another fantastic commute on the subway this morning. Honestly, how does the #TTC expect us to use it's services as reliable transportation? Ridership down yet extreme overcrowding and delays every. single. day. Can't wait to start taking @GOtransit— Carli Atherton (@carliatherton) May 10, 2018
But, some are taking notice that TTC workers are doing the best they can in a situation like this.
@TTChelps shout out to the morning guy at Yonge/Bloor. Many mornings the southbound platform is rammed but speaks calmly and tries to keep it light even though most people are cranky as hell. Makes it easier to wait. #ttc #bemorekind— Kevin Steenburg (@k_steenburg) May 10, 2018
