This weekend, on Saturday, August ‎16 and Sunday, August 17, there will be no service between Union and St Andrew stations as TTC crews prepare for the opening of the Union Subway Station second platform on Monday, August 18. ‎Customers heading to Union Station must travel south from Bloor-Yonge Station or walk from St Andrew Station. A Wheel-Trans service will be available for customers requiring an accessible connection.

On Monday, the new second platform will open, changing the way customers navigate Union Subway Station.  New signage will indicate which platform serves the University Line Northbound to Downsview and which serves the Yonge Line Northbound to Finch. To board your train, you will need to take the proper stairwell. Customer service staff will be on-hand to offer assistance.

The new station design provides easier access to the PATH, which can be accessed using the West by-pass or the re-opened East by-pass through Brookfield Place.

The TTC will hold a “Meet the Manager” session at Union Station on Monday from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. to celebrate the opening of the new Second Platform, assist customers, and answer questions related to the project. This important phase marks the next milestone in a project designed to increase capacity, improve accessibility, and ease passenger circulation at Canada’s busiest transit hub.
