TTC Reveals 35 Planned Weekend Subway Closures for 2017

Time to start planning ahead

The list is in! The Toronto Transit Commission has scheduled 35 weekend closures in 2017, with the last closure taking place on the weekend of December 2.

The TTC made efforts to have fewer closures this year in comparison to the 38 closures that took place in 2016.

Over half of the scheduled closures will affect Line 1 (Yonge-University-Spadina).

“It’s inconvenient for our customers, but it’s necessary work. We’re trying to modernize the system,” said TTC spokesperson Stuart Green.
