No TTC subway service on parts of Line 1 and other weekend changes you need to know about

The TTC says there will be subway closures and service adjustments starting this weekend due to track work and special events. 

Saturday closure on Line 1 from St. George to St. Andrew:

On Saturday, Oct. 28, there will be no subway service on the University side of Line 1 between St. George and St. Andrew stations.

Shuttle buses will not operate along University Ave. to avoid construction and expected traffic. Instead, the TTC says it will increase service on downtown surface routes.

For those heading downtown on Saturday, there are a few options:

Anyone on the University side of Line 1 can take a 510 Spadina streetcar from Spadina Station and transfer to connecting eastbound services at College St., Dundas St., Queen St., or King St.

People on the Yonge side of Line 1 can connect to westbound services at Wellesley Station, College Station, Dundas Station, Queen Station, or King Station.

Museum, Queens Park, and St. Patrick stations will be closed. 

“While the TTC does most subway maintenance at the conclusion of service each night, it continues to require weekend and early weeknight closures to complete critical infrastructure and state-of-good-repair work,” the transit agency said.
