A portion of Line 1 Yonge-University will be closed this weekend to accommodate scheduled TTC track repairs.
Shuttle buses will be running between Finch and Lawrence stations both Saturday and Sunday, with regular service resuming Monday morning at 6:00 a.m.
Any customers who plan on heading downtown this weekend can use the University portion of Line 1, which is operating normally.
Although some may find the closure inconvenient the TTC says a weekend of work is equivalent to about five weeks of just tackling the project during the evening hours.
The TTC released this video to help explain that.
The next schedules subway closures are:
– Line 1 Yonge-University: St George to Lawrence West – October 29-30
– Line 2 Bloor-Danforth: Pape to St George – November 5-6
– Line 1 Yonge-University: St George to Lawrence West – November 12-13
A reminder from the TTC about PRESTO cards. The tap-and-pay system is not yet available on all shuttle buses. “Customers should carry tokens, tickets or cash in case the vehicle that arrives is not yet PRESTO-equipped.”
