Line 1

24 Hours Toronto - - News -

This week­end, Line 1 Yonge-Univer­sity will be closed be­tween St Ge­orge and Lawrence West sta­tions for test­ing and emer­gency re­sponse train­ing for the TTC’s new Au­to­matic Train Con­trol (ATC) sys­tem.

Shut­tle buses will run be­tween Shep­pard West and Lawrence West sta­tions only due to on-street con­struc­tion around Eglin­ton West, St Clair West and Dupont sta­tions. To sup­ple­ment shut­tle ser­vice and move cus­tomers more ef­fi­ciently to the Yonge St. side of Line 1, the TTC is dou­bling ser­vice on nine east-west bus and street­car routes in the clo­sure area. Wheel-Trans ser­vice is avail­able on re­quest.
