The TTC report claims that the system will be installed between Dupont and St Patrick stations by next month. By early 2020, it will be installed between St. Patrick and Queen stations.

Narcity reached Green for comment about how the TTC plans to handle signal problem-related delays over the next couple years as installation work continues. He provided the following statement:

Following a months-long review directed by incoming CEO Rick Leary in mid-2018, it was determined that revisions to the ATC project made after the original schedule was drafted were going to extend the timeline and add costs.

We are confident the new schedule and additional funds will result in the project’s completion on Line 1 in 2022. The ATC system provides the TTC with the ability to run a more reliable service for our customers with fewer delays and the ability to run trains closer together to increase capacity on the line and reduce crowding at the busiest times of day.

We are already seeing tangible service benefits on the section of Line 1 between Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and Dupont stations where the system is already active.
