Subway service has resumed on Line 1 between St. Andrew and Spadina stations following emergency track repair work at Museum Station.

Trains weren’t been running between those stations since the start of the Friday morning rush hour. Service resumed just before 2:30 p.m.

In a post on X earlier in the day, the TTC said they became aware of a “cracked switch” overnight and were hoping to have service restored in time for the “PM rush hour.”

“We acknowledge and apologize for the inconvenience. But this avoids all-day slowdowns and an early closure, all of which would be more disruptive to service.”

Shuttle buses were running between St. Andrew and Spadina stations.

Riders were also able to use the Yonge side of Line 1 to access the downtown core during the subway closure. The TTC said it had also added streetcars to the 510 Spadina route.
