There will be no service on Line 3 (Scarborough RT) this weekend, April 25-26 as the Toronto Transit Commission replaces 366 metres of track, installs new communication cables and tests the power supplies.

Replacement buses will operate between McCowan and Kennedy stations, stopping at all Line 3 stations along the way. Customers will also be able to exit the buses at other transit stops upon request. Collector booths at all Line 3 stations will remain open for customers to purchase TTC fare.

Wheel-Trans vehicles will be available for customers who require accessible transit between Kennedy and McCowan stations. Customers can speak with any uniformed TTC employee at either station to make use of this service.

This is the first of five scheduled closures on Line 3 this year as the TTC undertakes a complete rehabilitation of the tracks and vehicles to provide a more reliable and comfortable service over the next 10 years. The line will be decommissioned following the opening of the Scarborough Subway Extension. The next Line 3 closure is scheduled for June 20 - 21.

Regular service will resume on Mon., April 27 at 6 a.m.
