Take The Better Way to the Race – take the TTC!

There will be no subway service on Line 1 between Lawrence and St Clair stations on Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7, 2019 due to installation of the new Automatic Train Control signalling system. 

Shuttle buses will operate. Wheel-Trans service will be available for customers requiring accessible service within the closure area. 

As Lawrence Station is not yet an accessible station, customers travelling southbound on Line 1 who require an elevator should exit at York Mills Station and see any TTC employee to request Wheel-Trans service.
