This morning, commuters were forced to line the streets of Toronto waiting for shuttle buses after the subway got partially derailed.
The TTC has revealed that subway service has resumed on Line 2 between Jane and Ossington stations after a train derailed in the middle of the morning rush hour on Wednesday. All trains stopped travelling between the stations at about 6:08 a.m.
While almost 100 shuttle buses were ordered to help get passengers to their desired locations, according to TTC representative Stuart Green, commuters had to form long lines to boardthe shuttles at all seven stations. In fact, some TTC users had to wait more than half an hour to get on a bus. The wait was so bad at Bloor Street West that the street was temporarily closed between Royal York and Jane Street due to the pedestrian traffic.
Check out some clips of the fiasco below.
