After an exciting transit weekend with the TTC unveiling its new subway line and opening to the public for free rides all Sunday long, the inevitable has happened - delays and service suspensions.
The TTC has just announced via Twitter that they've suspended subway service between Jane and Islington stations due to an individual being injured at track level near Royal York station.
