Bathurst Construction Begins

Toronto’s construction season kicks into full gear this month and the TTC is no different. This Monday, buses will replace streetcars on Bathurst Street as the TTC spends the next two months replacing old tracks on the line. Work will start on the section between College and Dundas and northbound Bathurst buses will divert, day and night, via Dundas, Augusta and College. More information on the project can be found here.

The Queen East trackwork project appears to be weeks ahead of schedule. The fifth and final phase, which had been set for early June, will now come into effect on Wednesday, May 11. Trackwork has moved beyond Kingswood Drive and the diverted 143 Beach Express and the temporary 13 Neville Park will loop via Blantyre, Queen and Victoria Park before returning to Kingston Road. More information can be found here.

And the Sheppard subway will close early again, shutting down at 10 p.m. starting this Sunday until this Wednesday. The closure is required so that the TTC can update and test the line’s signalling software. Service will be replaced by frequent buses operating between Don Mills and Sheppard/Yonge stations. More information can be found here.

Service Changes Announced

A new TTC board period begins on Sunday, May 8 and that means the TTC will be adjusting its routes. Most of the changes this month (official announcement here) have to do with the change of seasons. Routes serving schools and universities are seeing their service reduced, while others serving popular summer attractions are seeing service increased. There is also permanent service improvements to a handful of routes, specifically 11 Bayview, 73 Royal York, 105 Keele North and 134 Progress. Accessible buses have been added to 9 Bellamy, 34 Eglinton East and 103 Mount Pleasant North.
