TTC riders frustrated after major subway delays on Line 1

It was a commuting nightmare for TTC riders after subway delays affected both sides of Line 1 on Thursday.

The transit system said it experienced major delays southbound between Wilson and Museum stations.

The delays started just after 6 a.m. because of a signal issue. Regular service resumed just before 10:30 a.m.

At one point, TTC officials said travel times could be 20 to 30 minutes longer for those travelling south on the line.

The TTC ran shuttle buses between Eglinton and Union stations to supplement subway service during the delay.

These delays came on the same day the TTC board approved a fare increase in this year’s capital budget.

TTC riders expressed their frustration over the transit issues on Twitter.
