StG-Woodbine.gif

The TTC is closing Line 2 Bloor - Danforth between Woodbine and St George stations earlier than usually, Monday, July 19 until Thursday, July 22. Line 2 subway trains operate only between Kennedy and Woodbine stations and between Kipling and St George stations after 11 p.m. those nights.

Shuttle buses partially replace Line 2 service. The buses drop off or pick up passengers on the street near all stations on the closed section of the line. TTC staff are available at each station to direct you to shuttle-bus stops.

Most stations remain open so you can pay fares or connect with TTC buses, streetcars and Line 1 Yonge - University trains. However, Chester, Sherbourne and Bay stations are closed. The TTC is also closing the Lipton Avenue entrance / exit at Pape Station.

Although all shuttle buses are accessible, Wheel-Trans is also available from all stations. Ask any TTC staff member for information about Wheel-Trans frequency and stops.

While this section of Line 2 is closed, TTC crews are maintaining the tracks. According to a TTC news release, “While the TTC does most subway maintenance at the conclusion of service each night, it continues to require weekend and early weeknight closures to complete critical infrastructure and [signal] upgrades.”
