TORONTO – As a benefit to residents and visitors, the TTC is going to add service to the lines for Saturday.

This Saturday, April 27, the TTC is boosting service to help fans get around the city safely as they cheer on the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre and the Maple Leafs at Scotiabank Arena. Additional subway trains will be running on Line 1 Yonge-University and Line 2 Broadview-Danforth, and extra streetcars will operate on the 509 Habourfront.

The TTC will also be running a special Wheel-Trans service for customers attending the Cherry Blossom Festival at High Park over the weekend. Wheel-Trans vehicles will be available at Keele and Runnymead stations between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. This service is specifically designed to cater to customers with accessibility needs, providing them with a convenient transportation option to and from High Park. A reservation is not required.

The TTC is also advising customers of upcoming subway closures and service diversions to accommodate track work and construction, and road closures for weekend events being held in the city.

Saturday subway closure between Davisville and York Mills stations

This Sat., Apr. 27 only, there will be no subway service on the portion of Line 1 Yonge-University between Davisville and York Mills stations to accommodate track and tunnel work.
