Major delays on the TTC ruined everyone's morning commute

Another day, another massive delay on the TTC. 

Nearly the entirety of the Line 1 loop was out of service this morning thanks to signal issues, plunging commuters into a special kind of Toronto hell. 

What started as a closure between Finch and Union stations became a closure between Finch to St. Clair West stations, which thankfully has since been resolved.

Shuttle buses were deployed, which is never a fun way to start the day.

Despite the fact the TTC indicated delays of 15 minutes, it took many way longer than that. Don't be surprised if some of your coworkers are just strolling in now. 

It's pretty common for commuters to leave a TTC ride feeling a little worse for wear.

The past few weeks has been brutal for subway closures, given the nonstop track upgrades that have plagued Line 1. 

The TTC appeared to have been on a pretty good streak, until today. Happy humpday everyone.
