This weekend, Saturday, March 18 and Sunday, March 19, the TTC is closing Line 2 (Bloor - Danforth) between Warden and Kennedy stations, while crews replace tracks and maintain switches on that part of the line.
It’s operating frequent express shuttle buses between the two stations.
Both stations are open so you can buy passes, tokens, tickets and other fare media and connect with buses. Line 3 (Scarborough) trains continue to operate with their regular weekend schedules.
The TTC has assigned Wheel-Trans buses to operate between Victoria Park and Kennedy stations for passengers requiring an accessible connection. (Victoria Park station has an elevator.) Speak to any TTC employee to ask for Wheel-Trans.
Regular subway service resumes 6 a.m. Monday, March 20.
The TTC is not planning to close this section of Line 2 during another weekend this year.
According to the TTC, “Maintaining subway infrastructure in a state-of-good-repair is critical to ensuring a safe, reliable transit system. While the TTC does much of its maintenance work on the subway at the conclusion of service each night, it will continue to require weekend closures to complete improvements to infrastructure and signals, such as automatic train control. One weekend of work during a subway closure equals about five weeks of nightly work.”
