The TTC is closing all of Line 3 Scarborough this weekend, Saturday, April 22 and Sunday, April 23. Shuttle buses operate on nearby streets to replace the rapid transit line. The buses stop at all stations along the line between McCowan and Kennedy Stations.
McCowan, Ellesmere and Midland stations are closed this weekend. You may buy fares at Kennedy, Lawrence East or Scarborough Centre stations.
Wheel-Trans buses operate between Scarborough Centre and Kennedy stations. Ask any TTC staff member for Wheel-Trans accessible service.
While the line is closed, TTC crews are maintaining the tracks and signals on the line. The TTC continues its program of rehabilitating Line 3 tracks and vehicles to provide a more reliable and comfortable service over the next 10 years. It will close the line when it opens the extension of Line 2 Bloor - Danforth to Scarborough Centre.
The TTC has scheduled just two more weekend closures of Line 3 this year:
- Saturday, May 27 and Sunday, May 28; and
- Sunday, August 27.
Line 3 opened March 24, 1986, so the tracks, stations and vehicles are now more than 31 years old.
