The mayor of Toronto is calling for an investigation into the handling by the city’s transit agency of a derailment that shut down a stretch of a major subway line on Thursday.
John Tory says a breakdown in communication after the incident may have contributed to the roughly eight-hour-long delay.
The Toronto Transit Commission says a work car derailed around 5:30 a.m. at St. George Station, stopping service between St. Clair West and Union stations until 1 p.m.
Nobody was injured in the incident.
The TTC ran shuttle buses along the affected subway line, and also says it added extra cars and streetcars on alternate routes.
But Tory says details of the delay weren’t shared with transit workers or members of the public quickly or effectively enough.
