This weekend, on October 18 -19, there will be no service on Line 1 (Yonge-University) between Bloor and Eglinton stations for signal and track work. Frequent shuttle buses will operate between Bloor and Eglinton stations. TTC staff will be on-hand all weekend at all affected stations to assist customers. Davisville, St Clair and Rosedale stations will remain open for fare transactions and connecting surface routes. Summerhill Station will be closed. WheelTrans buses will be available to accommodate customers who use wheelchairs, scooters and other mobility aids.

This weekend’s work is part of the TTC’s commitment to modernizing its signal system and maintaining track and switches to ensure a more reliable subway service. The equipment on this portion of Line 1 is 60-years-old in many cases, and needs upgrading and replacing.

Customers heading to the Toronto Argonaut football game and the Waterfront Marathon this weekend are encouraged to leave additional travel time. Alternate routes to the subway service on Line 1 include:

- Frequent shuttle buses on Yonge Street between Eglinton and Bloor stations
- 32 Eglinton West bus from Eglinton to Eglinton West Station
- 512 St Clair streetcar from St Clair to St Clair West Station

Regular subway service resumes on Monday, October 20, at 6 a.m.
