No subway service, Lawrence to St Clair
this weekend, February 10 and 11



StC_to_Law.jpg

The TTC is closing part of its Line 1 Yonge - University subway between Lawrence and St Clair Stations all day Saturday, February 10 and Sunday, February 11. Line 1 trains operate only between Finch and Lawrence stations and between St Clair and Vaughan Metropolitan Centre stations this weekend.

Frequent shuttle buses replace the trains, operating from the bus terminals at Lawrence and St Clair Stations, stopping in Eglinton Station bus terminal and on Yonge Street near Davisville Station. Buses likely operate to and from St Clair Station’s lower bus terminal on the south side of the station property off Pleasant Boulevard.


This weekend, Metrolinx contractors continue working on the Eglinton - Crosstown light rail transit line, requiring the TTC to close this part of Line 1. Current and upcoming Crosstown work in the area of Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue includes construction below the TTC’s Eglinton Station, shifting the TTC’s platform to the north and building and installing a new TTC tunnel ventilation system at the south and north ends of the subway platform. Metrolinx intends to open the LRT in 2021.

Metrolinx requires the TTC to close this part of the subway line 24 times this year for Crosstown construction. This is the first of 15 closures between Lawrence and St Clair; another eight affect the section between Sheppard - Yonge and St Clair and one between Finch and St Clair. During these nine closures affecting the line north of Lawrence, the TTC will also undertake track work.


Wheel-Trans buses also operate between Lawrence and St Clair stations. Passengers can ask any TTC staff member for Wheel-Trans service. Because Lawrence Station is not yet accessible, passengers travelling southbound along Line 1 towards Lawrence Station who require an elevator should exit the train at York Mills Station and ask any any TTC for Wheel-Trans.


Davisville Station, including the bus terminal, is closed to passengers Saturday and Sunday. Line 1 shuttle buses and regular buses operating along the 11 Bayview, 14 Glencairn, 28 Bayview South and 97 Yonge routes drop off or pick up passengers on Chaplin Crescent, Davisville Avenue or Yonge Street, instead of the terminal, this weekend.

Lawrence, Eglinton and St Clair Stations remain open for passengers to buy fares or connect with buses and streetcars.


Shuttle-bus alternatives

Plan your trips on the subway ahead of time this Saturday and Sunday to avoid stress and crowds. Leave extra time in your schedule and expect longer traveling times those days.

While shuttle buses operate frequently, they will be crowded.

Regular TTC buses and streetcars provide less frequent, less direct, but, perhaps, less stressful alternatives. Consider travelling along the University branch, instead of the Yonge branch, to and from downtown Toronto and avoid the shuttle buses entirely this weekend. Or board buses along the 97 Yonge route to travel to and from stops on Yonge north of Davisville Avenue / Chaplin Crescent.

Ride buses or streetcars on routes serving streets north or south of the closure to reach stations on the University branch:

  • Ride buses operating along the 84 Sheppard West and 196 York University rocket routes and board the subway at Sheppard West Station, instead of Sheppard - Yonge Station.
  • Ride buses operating along the 96 Wilson or 165 Weston Rd North routes and board the subway at Wilson Station, instead of York Mills Station.
  • Ride buses operating along the 52 Lawrence West route and board the subway at Lawrence West Station, instead of Lawrence Station.
  • Ride buses operating along the 32 Eglinton West route and board the subway at Eglinton West Station, instead of Eglinton Station.
  • Ride streetcars operating along the 512 St. Clair route and board the subway at St. Clair West Station, instead of St. Clair Station.
  • Ride trains operating along the 2 Bloor - Danforth subway line and board the 1 Yonge - University - Spadina line at St. George Station, instead of Yonge Station.
  • Ride streetcars operating along the 506 Carlton route and board the subway at Queen’s Park Station, instead of College Station.
  • Ride streetcars operating along the 505 Dundas route and board the subway at St. Patrick Station, instead of Dundas Station.
  • Ride streetcars operating along the 501 Queen route and board the subway at Osgoode Station, instead of Queen Station.
  • Ride streetcars operating along the 504 King and 514 Cherry routes and board the subway at St. Andrew Station, instead of King Station.

The TTC is working with the City of Toronto and Toronto Police Service to temporarily restrict street parking on the southbound lanes of Yonge Street between Lawrence and St Clair avenues. Parking restrictions on shuttle bus routes across the system to keep the city moving as smoothly as possible during subway closures.

Saturday, February 10: Parking on the northbound side of Yonge Street (east curb lane) between Lawrence and St Clair avenues is available. Parking on the southbound side of Yonge Street (west curb lane) between Lawrence and St Clair avenues is not available 9 a.m. until 9 p.m.

Sunday, February 11: Parking is available all day on both sides of Yonge Street.


(Update, Thursday, February 15, 3:35 p.m.: The TTC has cancelled the closure for next weekend. It’s next closing this section of the subway Saturday, February 24 and Sunday, February 25.)

This section of the subway is again closed for Metrolinx construction:

  • Saturday, February 17 and Sunday, February 18 (next weekend).
