The TTC is closing part of the Line 1 Yonge - University subway earlier than usually Wednesday, April 24 and Thursday, April 25. It’s closing the section between Bloor and St Andrew stations at 11 p.m., as crews continue installing the automated train-control (ATC) signal system. Line 1 subway trains operate only between Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and St Andrew stations and between Finch and Bloor stations after 11 p.m. those evenings.

Frequent shuttle buses operate to partially replace subway service, dropping off or picking up passengers on the street near each of the stations on the closed section of the line. Wheel-Trans service is also available if you need accessible connections.

Most stations on this section of Line 1 remain open so that you can buy fares. However Wellesley Station is closed after 11 p.m. each night.

According to a TTC news release, “When ATC is fully installed on Line 1, it will provide a more modern and reliable signal system that will help the TTC improve capacity by allowing for increased trips on the line.”
