Subway Closure? More Bikes!

This is a good post to share with your friends who don’t bike (yet).

We had better gear up for lots of new cyclists on the road this October… the TTC is shutting down the subway for 9 (!) consecutive days to upgrade the signal system.

Badly needed upgrades will grind subway service to a halt in the heart of downtown for nine consecutive days in October, an unprecedented closure that stands to affect hundreds of thousands of commuters.

While the TTC replaces the outdated, increasingly unreliable signalling system that caused a major disruption this week, there will be no service on the Yonge-University-Spadina line between Osgoode and King stations, from Oct. 12 to 20.

The entire downtown “U,” from St. George to Bloor stations, will be closed during the two weekends that bookend the nine-day period, the first of which is Thanksgiving weekend.
