No subway service, Finch West to Wilson
this weekend, March 30 and 31, April 1

The TTC is closing the Line 1 Yonge - University subway between Finch West and Wilson stations this weekend, as crews upgrade the signals. Line 1 subway trains operate only between Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and Finch West stations and between Wilson and Finch Stations all day Good Friday, Friday, March 30, Saturday, March 31 and Easter Sunday, April 1.

Express shuttle buses partially replace subway service between the two stations. The buses start and end their trips in the bus terminals at both stations.

Wilson Station is not yet accessible, so if you’re travelling northbound on Line 1 towards Wilson Station and require an elevator, exit the train at Lawrence West Station. Wheel-Trans buses operate between Finch West and Lawrence West stations. Ask any TTC staff member for Wheel-Trans service.

While this part of the subway line is closed, crews work on the automatic train control system or ATC. According to a TTC news release, “When ATC is fully implemented on Line 1, it will provide a more modern and reliable signal system that will allow for an increase in the number of trains operating on the line. While the TTC does most subway maintenance at the conclusion of service each night, it continues to require weekend closures to complete critical infrastructure and ATC upgrades.”

Regular subway service resumes April 2.


The TTC is closing this part of Line 1 eight more times this year:

  • Saturday, May 12 and Sunday, May 13 — Finch West to Lawrence West.
  • Saturday, June 9 and Sunday, June 10 — Finch West to Lawrence West.
