By Andrew Moran     Jul 7, 2011 in Travel
Toronto - There is currently no subway service on the Yonge-University-Spadina line for transit riders travelling between Eglinton and Bloor Stations. The Toronto Transit Commission shutdown subway service for an emergency track repair.
It was announced a little more than an hour ago through Twitter that there was no subway service on the Yonge subway line between Eglinton and Bloor stations. Shuttle buses have immediately been ordered to pick up and drop off subway passengers travelling that route.
TTC officials cancelled service due to a broken rail just south of the Davisville Subway Station. Crews are on the scene for an emergency track repair. It is unclear as to how long service will be cancelled for.
TTC representatives say service will resume as soon as possible.
This service disruption comes as the TTC is set to implement its new fleet of subway trains. It also comes as the city is selling off subway station naming rights to private entities. Ryerson University is currently interested in the Dundas Subway Station.
