The TTC is delaying the start of service along the Line 2 Bloor - Danforth subway between Pape and St George stations this Sunday, October 14 due City of Toronto bridge work under the Prince Edward Viaduct. TTC crews are also maintaining the track on this section of the line. All Line 2 trains operate only between Kennedy and Pape stations and between Kipling and St George stations before noon that day.

The TTC is replacing subway service with shuttle buses between the two stations.

The shuttle buses start their trips in Pape Station terminal, then operate operate along Pape and Danforth Avenues, the Prince Edward Viaduct and Bloor Streets East and West. They drop off or pick up passengers at the intersections nearest to subway stations on the closed section of the line:

  • on Danforth Avenue at Chester and Broadview Avenues;
  • on Bloor Street at Castle Frank Road, Sherbourne, Yonge and Bay Streets.

At St George Station, buses drop off passengers on St. George Street beside the station entrance / exit. They then loop along St. George, Prince Arthur Avenue and Bedford Road. The buses pick up passengers on the west side of Bedford beside the subway station entrance / exit, before heading eastward toward Pape Station.

Chester, Sherbourne and Bay stations are closed before noon, but Pape, Broadview, Castle Frank, Yonge and St George stations remain open so that passengers can buy fares or transfer to buses and streetcars.

If you need accessible transportation, Wheel-Trans buses also operate from all stations on the closed portion of the line. You can ask for the Wheel-Trans bus by speaking with staff at these stations.


Shuttle-bus alternatives

One way that you can reduce the impact of the closure is by planning ahead, leaving earlier than usually and giving yourself more time to get to where you’re going.

Although shuttle buses replacing subway service will be frequent, they may also be crowded.

Regular TTC streetcars and buses provide less frequent, less direct, but, perhaps, less stressful alternatives. Consider boarding streetcars or buses east or west of the closure to by-pass the crowds, if you’re traveling to and from downtown.

  • Board streetcars along the 504 King route at Dundas West Station. Connect with the Line 1 Yonge - University subway at St Andrew or King stations.
  • Board buses along the 505 Dundas route at Dundas West Station. Connect with the Line 1 Yonge - University subway at Dundas or St Patrick stations.
  • Board streetcars along the 506 Carlton route at Main Street Station. Connect with the Line 1 Yonge - University subway at College or Queen’s Park stations.
  • Board buses along the 94 Wellesley route at Ossington Station. Connect with the Line 1 Yonge - University subway at Wellesley Station.

The TTC has closed this part of the Line 2 subway four times before this year:

It’s closing this section of the subway once more this year:
