TTC passengers are dealing with major delays on the Bloor subway line this morning.
The portion of Line 2 between Jane and Ossington stations is closed in both directions as the TTC deals with mechanical problems.
“Our crews are reporting a partial derailment of one of the middle cars of a train that was leaving Keele Yard. It was not in service,” wrote TTC spokesperson Stuart Green in a tweet.
“Currently assessing the cause and re-railing plan, but this will take a few hours to resolve.”
About 100 shuttles have been ordered to run between the stations along Bloor Street. The interruption began just after 6 a.m.
Passengers can use their TTC fare to access GO Transit at Union, Dundas West and Kipling stations in the meantime as well.
At about 8:30 a.m., Green tweeted that there’s still no ETA on service resuming.
“Third and fourth cars have been decoupled for better access to derailed car (4th),” Green posted.
