Bloor-Yonge subway station was briefly evacuated due to a security incident inside, the TTC says.

Commuters were forced out of the busy station just after 6 p.m. due to an unspecified safety issue, a TTC spokesperson told CP24.

Police from 53 Division said they responded to the scene for a report of a suspicious package but it was resolved quickly and all is in order.

Subway service on Line 2 between St. George and Broadview stations and on Line 1 between Davisville and St. George stations was halted until about 6:50 p.m.

The station re-opened to the public around 7 p.m.

Shuttle buses were ordered but have been cancelled.
