This weekend, February 28th and March 1st, there will be no subway service between Union station and St. Andrew station on the Yonge-University-Spadina (YUS) line. The whole line will be re-opened Monday morning, March 2nd.
The closure is to allow for the TTC to continue with work on new separate platforms at Union station. As such, part of the TTC’s Union station must be closed.
As part of the work, a portion of the PATH system, which runs through Union station, will also be closed down.
For passengers with accessibility issues, wheel trans buses will be available. TTC employees will be at St. Andrew and Union stations in order to assist all passengers.
The TTC is recommending that passengers who use the University Avenue portion of the route to access Union station (to are travelling to a stop on the Yonge Line and travel around through Union station) should transfer at St. George station (taking the Bloor-Danforth line to Yonge station), Queen’s Park station (using the 506 Carlton car), St. Patrick station (using the 505 Dundas car), or Osgoode station (connecting to the 501 Queen car.) Passengers then continue south on the Yonge line.
Passengers can still get off at St. Andrew station and connect with the 504 King car, however the TTC warns that it may be less crowded to get off at another station, and head east along another route, before continuing south on the Yonge line.
