Early closure of northern portion of TTC’s Line 1 has ended
December 23, 2015
Effective Friday Dec. 18,nightly early closure of Line 1 between Eglinton and Finch stations has ended. Subway service north of Eglinton Station will once again operate until the end of normal service – just before 2 a.m.
Subway service north of Eglinton has ended at 12:30 a.m. Sunday to Friday nights since 2008, with shuttle buses operating until the normal end of service.
In June, 2008, the TTC adopted the early closure to facilitate the repair of concrete tunnel liners, as the normal weekend and night maintenance window was insufficient to carry out the extensive work required.
Maintaining subway infrastructure in a state-of-good-repair is critical to ensuring a safe, reliable transit system. The TTC thanks its customers for their patience during this time.
