Labour disruption may affect elevator service at TTC stations
May 9, 2013
On May 1, the union representing elevator maintenance technicians (unrelated to the TTC) went on a legal strike across Ontario. As a result, elevators that service Toronto Transit Commission subway and RT stations may be out of service for longer than usual after a breakdown.
The TTC has a contingency plan to deal with emergencies, including working with its contractor and Toronto Fire Service in the event someone becomes trapped in a malfunctioning elevator. The TTC is also working to secure a non-emergency service contract for its 80 elevators during this labour disruption.
Customers should call the TTC lift line at 416-539-5438 or visit ttc.ca to before departing on their trip to ensure the elevators that are part of their journey are operating.
