There will be no subway service between St. George and Lawrence West stations on October 15th and 16th due to signal upgrades. All trains on the Yonge-University line will turn back southbound at St George Station and northbound at Lawrence West Station.
During this closure, shuttle buses will stop at all stations along the route with the exception of Eglinton West Station. Shuttle buses will not enter the station and customers should board shuttle buses at the intersection of Bathurst Street and Eglinton Avenue West.
On Sunday 8am-noon, shuttle buses will operate from Spadina Station to Lawrence West Station from 8 a.m. until noon to accommodate the Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon. Customers may connect to Line 2 at Spadina Station and to Line 1 southbound via St George Station.
All stations along the closure route will be open for the purchase of TTC tickets, tokens, passes, etc., with the exception of Glencairn Station, which will be closed. Shuttle buses will pick up and drop off customers at the station.
PRESTO is not yet available on all shuttle buses. Customers should carry tokens, tickets or cash in case the vehicle that arrives is not yet PRESTO-equipped.
Wheel-Trans buses will operate from Lawrence West and St George stations for customers requiring an accessible connection. Customers can speak with any TTC staff to request the service.
To provide a faster trip for shuttle buses, parking will be restricted on Bathurst Street between Ava Road and Glencairn Avenue.
