With the passage of back-to-work legislation today at Queen's Park, the Toronto Transit Commission is pleased to announce that service will resume later today, with full rush-hour service running Monday morning.

The TTC has contacted all of its employees. Those who were scheduled for a shift this afternoon are being asked to report to work. It will take the TTC approximately three to four hours to bring the service up to safe, normal operating standards. The TTC has every faith that the women and men who move this city will do so with professionalism.

Some customers may experience delays early in the process of restoring service. The TTC acknowledges the frustration and inconvenience everyone has faced since Friday evening, and is working hard to restore service as quickly as possible. The TTC also requests the public to please remember that TTC employees have a right to be treated with dignity. The TTC's chief concern is safety - both for its customers and its workers.

NOTE:

Mayor David Miller and TTC Chair Adam Giambrone will be available to speak with media at 3 p.m., Mayor's Office, Toronto City Hall.
