In addition to this good news, the TTC is increasing service along several routes that head towards the Victoria Day fireworks display at Ashbridges Bay Park on Monday.

Victoria Day long weekend service

There are no subway closures scheduled for the upcoming Victoria Day long weekend.

With ActiveTO returning this weekend, several TTC routes will be diverting to accommodate road closures, including the 80 Queensway and 174 Ontario Place Exhibition. Customers are encouraged to leave themselves extra time when travelling through these areas and visit ttc.ca for help planning their trips.

Also beginning at noon on Mon. May 23, the TTC will be increasing service on the 22 Coxwell, 92 Woodbine, and 501 Queen routes to accommodate those travelling to and from Ashbridges Bay Park for the Victoria Day fireworks display. Dedicated shuttle buses will operate from Woodbine and Coxwell stations. Additional TTC personnel will also be on site to help direct customers to the appropriate boarding locations.

Tuesday – Thursday

Tues., May 24 through Thurs., May 26, subway service on the portion of Line 2 between Jane and Ossington stations will end nightly at 11 p.m. for track work.

Replacement shuttle buses will run and TTC staff will be on hand to direct customers to shuttle boarding and offloading locations.

While all stations will remain open for people to load their PRESTO card, purchase PRESTO Tickets and connect to surface routes, some entrances/exits will be closed temporarily.

At High Park Station, the automatic entrances/exits at Parkview Gardens will be closed. At Keele Station, the Indian Grove automatic entrance/exit will be closed. At Lansdowne Station, the automatic entrance/exit at Emerson Ave. will be closed. At Dufferin Station, the automatic entrance/exit at Russett Ave. will also be closed. Other entrances and exits will be available for customers at each subway station.

Customers who require Wheel-Trans service can speak with any TTC customer service staff member for assistance.

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 ATC signal upgrades.

The TTC is committed to keeping customers informed about work and events that impact service and about alternate routes. For the most up-to-date information, follow @TTCNotices on Twitter or sign up for eAlerts.
