reduced speed ttc

Here are all the parts of the TTC where trains may now crawl at painfully slow speeds

The TTC continues to rotate so-called "Reduced Speed Zones" where subway passengers may encounter longer-than-normal travel times, an ongoing precaution due to ongoing subway track maintenance for a system struggling to fit state-of-good-repair upgrades into off-hours.

The transit agency released its updated list of these zones on Tuesday, which may slow some trains to a crawl on sections of Lines 1 and 2 of the subway network.

Subway operators travelling these stretches may be asked by the TTC's transit control centre to slow down due to crews at track level or ongoing track maintenance.

Subway passengers are advised of the following Reduced Speed Zones in effect on Lines 1 and 2:

Line 1 (Yonge-University):
  • Northbound from Sheppard-Yonge to North York Centre
  • Southbound from St Clair West to Dupont
  • Southbound from Wilson to Yorkdale
Line 2 (Bloor-Danforth):
  • Eastbound from Broadview to Chester
  • Eastbound from Keele to Dundas West
  • Westbound from Chester to Broadview
  • Westbound from Dundas West to Keele

The transit agency has also released a map of the slow zones.

The commission warns customers that "these Reduced Speed Zones will mean that the train will travel slower than normal in the affected area," a temporary service downgrade that has drawn the ire of public transit users since it was first announced in February.

The TTC asks customers to check its website and social media for updates, but the real update transit users await is a day with no disruptions on the local transit system.
