Subway service resumes on TTC’s Line 1 following work car derailment

Another TTC subway vehicle derailment prompts calls for accountability
WATCH ABOVE: Another derailment in time for Thursday morning on the TTC has prompted another call for answers. While apologies are rolling in from both the TTC and Toronto city hall, an investigation in underway over several procedural issues. Matthew Bingley reports.

The TTC says subway service has now resumed between St. Clair West and Union stations on Line 1 following a work car derailment that shut down the transit system for hours.

The derailment occurred at St. George station at around 5:30 a.m. Thursday, the TTC said.

Replacement shuttle buses were deployed along the route and are still running while train service regulates, the TTC said.

The transit agency reminded customers that they can use GO Transit at Kipling, Dundas West, Downsview Park, Union, Danforth and Kennedy stations, including the UP Express for the same cost as a TTC fare when service is suspended.
