Full TTC subway service resumes
Full subway service has resumed between Bloor and Eglinton stations on the Yonge-University-Spadina line.

At approximately 2:30 this afternoon, a contractor doing road work unrelated to the TTC inadvertently punctured the roadbed, exposing the subway between St. Clair and Summerhill stations. TTC crews have secured a 75-foot cut slab of concrete to ensure the subway can operate safely.

Subway service will operate normally for the rest of the evening, as well as for the morning rush hour.

The Toronto Transit Commission moves 471 million people every year – about 1.5 million riders every weekday. The TTC is the third largest public transit system in North America servicing some 4.5 million people in the Greater Toronto Area, with a network of subways, streetcars, buses, and a specialized service, Wheel-Trans, for people who require accessible transportation. The TTC is committed to meeting the growing needs of the region with subway and light rail expansion, carrying an additional 175 million riders by 2021. For more information, visit
