TTC Good Friday service and upcoming subway closures


The TTC will be running a holiday service for Good Friday (Friday March 29, 2024). All TTC routes will operate a Sunday service schedule, but will start earlier at approximately 6 a.m. Routes that do not normally operate on Sundays will not operate on Good Friday.

Easter Event impacts

Easter events being held in the city will impact some TTC services this long weekend. On Friday, the 506 Carlton will be diverting between 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., for the St Francis of Assisi Church Good Friday Procession. Customers may experience delays on the 505 Dundas during the event. 

On Easter Sunday, the 64 Main, 92 Woodbine South and 501 Queen will be diverting between 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to accommodate the annual Toronto Beaches Lions Easter Parade.

Subway closures on the weekend

Full weekend subway closure between St George and Woodbine stations due to track upgrades

Starting at 11 p.m. Fri., Mar. 29, and through the weekend, there will be no subway service on the portion of Line 2 Bloor-Danforth between St George and Woodbine stations due to track work. Regular service will resume on Monday morning.

Shuttle buses

During the closure, shuttle buses will run, stopping at each station along the route. TTC staff will be on hand to direct customers to shuttle boarding and offloading locations. Bay, Sherbourne, Chester, and Greenwood stations will be closed during these hours. All other subway stations will remain open for customers to load PRESTO cards, purchase PRESTO tickets and connect to surface routes.

Wheel Trans

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

The closure will allow crews to perform essential track upgrades, including ongoing work to replace a rail switch between Broadview and Chester stations.

Nightly single-track operation between Finch West and Vaughan Metropolitan Centre stations

Mon., Apr. 1 through Thurs., Apr. 4, trains on Line 1 Yonge-University between Finch West and Vaughan Metropolitan Centre stations will operate on a single track nightly from 11 p.m., to accommodate maintenance work on the northbound tracks. Customers will need to change trains at Finch West Station to continue their journey. The TTC is advising customers to expect delays of up to 20 minutes during this time.

Reduced speed zones

The TTC is advising customers of speed restrictions currently in place on certain sections of Lines 1 and 2. These necessary speed reductions are a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of operations while maintenance work, including track replacement, is being conducted during nighttime hours. 

Customers traveling on Line 1 should expect longer travel times between specific stations, including St Andrew to King, York Mills to Sheppard-Yonge, and Dupont to St Clair West stations. On Line 2, reduced speed zones have been implemented in both directions between Castle Frank and Chester, as well as Keele and Dundas West stations.

As nightly track replacement work progresses, the TTC is restoring trains to normal speeds. Updates on all current reduced speed zones can be found on the TTC website: https://www.ttc.ca/service-advisories/subway-service/Reduced-Speed-Zones

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.

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