2022 - 06-20 - Jane to Ossington.jpg

The TTC is closing Line 2 Bloor - Danforth subway between Jane and Ossington stations earlier than usually Monday, June 20 until Wednesday, June 22. Line 2 subway trains operate only between Kipling and Jane stations and between Kennedy and Ossington stations after 11 p.m. those days.

Frequent buses partly replace Line 2 subway service. The buses drop off or pick up passengers at stops on the street near each station on the closed section of the Line.

Most stations on the closed section of the line remain open so you can pay fares or connect to TTC buses and streetcars. Note, however, that the TTC is closing exits / entrances for some stations on the closed section of Line 2 after 11 p.m.:

  • High Park Station: Parkview Gardens north (at Parkview Gardens and Clendenan Avenue) and south (at Bloor Street West and Parkview Gardens);
  • Keele Station: Indian Grove (at Bloor Street West and Indian Grove and at Bloor Street West and Indian Road);
  • Lansdowne Station: Emerson Avenue and Bloor Street West; and
  • Dufferin Station: Russett Avenue and Bloor Street West (both east and west sides).

While this part of Line 2 is closed, TTC crews are maintaining the tracks, likely also including activity on the bridge east of Keele Station. 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 state-of-good-repair work as well as… signal upgrades.”


The TTC is closing this section of Line 2 once more in June:

  • Wednesday, June 28 until Friday, June 30 — Jane to Ossington — close early — track work.

Since Monday, April 11, TTC contractors have been working on a project to upgrade the terminal at Dundas West Station. During the project, crews are:

  • rebuilding the streetcar tracks in the terminal;
  • modifying the platform for streetcar passengers; and
  • re-aligning the overhead streetcar wiring in some areas to improve how the TTC’s low-floor Flexity Outlook streetcars operate through the terminal.

Construction on the project takes place in three phases:

  • Phase one: replacing the tracks in Dundas West Station terminal and expanding the platform for streetcars along the 505 Dundas route;
  • Phase two: replacing the tracks on Dundas Street West, including “special track work” (curves and switches), between Edna Avenue and the terminal entrance; and
  • Phase three: replacing the tracks on Edna Avenue.

The TTC has now finished installing the tracks on Dundas and Edna and the City of Toronto reopened the streets to traffic Friday, June 17.

During the next phase, the TTC continues replacing the overhead wiring in the station.

During this phase of construction, it’s revising the detours for buses and streetcars along these routes:

  • 40 Junction - Dundas West;
  • 168 Symington;
  • 304C King overnight shuttle buses;
  • 306 Carlton overnight;
  • 312 St Clair - Junction overnight;
  • 402 Parkdale community bus;
  • 504C King shuttle buses; and
  • 505 Dundas.

The TTC continues to replace streetcars along the 304 King overnight and 504A King routes with buses along the 304C / 504C routes. The buses operate due the ongoing City of Toronto / TTC project to replace the streetcar tracks and improve the street infrastructure at the intersection of Queen Street West / King Street West / The Queensway / Roncesvalles Avenue.

Subway trains along Line 2 Bloor - Danforth continue to operate through and drop off or pick up passengers in Dundas West Station.

Metrolinx continues to update amenities and enhance accessibility at Agincourt GO Station, as part of the GO Expansion Program.


Monday, June 13, GO Transit opens the new permanent accessibility platform, but also starts new temporary train boarding and exit restrictions.

  • GO is closing the the temporary accessibility platform near the station building.
  • Due to the ongoing construction, not all coaches can open doors at Agincourt.

Travelling from Agincourt

  • Look for directional signs with information that direct you where to stand to board the trains.

Travelling to Agincourt

  • Listen to on-board train announcements to be sure you are on a coach that open doors at Agincourt.

Monday, October 25, 2021, GO opened the new station building.

The new building offers more seating, five new digital displays, a spacious and well-lit waiting area with phone-charging stations and a wood-panelled ceiling. Window design maximizes incoming daylight, while acid-etching treatment creates a translucent glass and allows glare-free light into the waiting and passenger-service area.


Although construction of the new station building is complete, work at the station will continue within the rail corridor, on the platforms and in the parking lot.

A new part of the west platform is open. GO continues to close the east platform and north walkway for construction. Two entrances safely lead you to the new platform — one near the station building and another farther south — to give you direct access to the platform from the parking lot. By opening the new platform, GO is shortening the walk between the parking lot and where you board your train.


When construction ends, you’ll also benefit from:

  • a new passenger pick-up and drop-off area (or “Kiss and Ride”);
  • a new second track and platform;
  • a renovated original platform;
  • two new pedestrian tunnels with elevators;
  • canopies and integrated shelters on the platforms to protect you from the elements;
  • a better connection to Sheppard Avenue East at the south end of the platforms; and
  • more landscaping.

Metrolinx and GO plan to accommodate more passengers and increase service along the Stouffville line, as part of their GO Expansion Program (formerly “regional express rail”).
