Union station has re-opened and full subway service resumed shortly before 11 p.m. a severe flooding of rainwater and sewage caused delays for rush hour commuters.

TTC spokesman Brad Ross confirmed in an email that full subway service has resumed on the Yonge-University-Spadina line between Bloor and Osgoode stations. The 510 Spadina and the 509 Harbourfront streetcars are also back in service at Union Station.

“The guys have performed a miracle actually. It’s a lot cleaner,” said TTC CEO Andy Byford Mr. Byford. “They’re still in the process of pumping the final bits of water. So, that’s still going on. We’ve sent in additional pumps… But there is still a fair bit to do.”
