Weekend brings road closures, downtown subway shutdown

There will be no subway service south of Bloor Street this weekend as the TTC continues to upgrade its 60-year-old signal system.

On both Saturday and Sunday there will be no subway service from Bloor–Yonge Station on Line 1 (Yonge-University-Spadina) to Union Station. There will also be no subway trains running between St. George Station station and Union Station.

The TTC will operate shuttle buses south of Bloor, but the buses won't go all the way to Union Station due to construction on Front Street.

Passengers heading to Union Station can access the underground PATH system from the Royal Bank Plaza at Front and Bay. TTC staff will be on hand to offer assistance.

Regular subway service will resume Monday.
