Summer Brings More Construction, Indy

This week’s transit alert for Metro can be found on page 23 of the Monday edition. The full version of the alert can be found here. Among the new alerts, be aware of late night diversions for the 35/315 Jane buses, and new delays for 29 Dufferin, 43 Kennedy, and 95 York Mills (and other buses using Ellesmere Road between Orton Park and Neilson). Once again, if you like this new feature in Metro, please be sure to let the good folks at this fine newspaper know.

This weekend sees the Molson Indy hit town. Lakeshore Boulevard will be closed as it is a part of the course. Attendees should take 511 Bathurst buses or 509 Harbourfront streetcars to the event. Those trying to skip the event and head to Ontario Place will be asked to get off at Strachan Avenue and walk. Crossing Lakeshore Boulevard on the west side will be a snap because all of the cars will be racing around the curve and won’t be using the intersection.

GO Transit will be adding trains to serve the Indy. Trains will be departing Oakville and Pickering at half-hourly intervals all through Sunday morning. Regular service is planned on Friday and Saturday but, of course, most trains will stop at Exhibition GO station. Friday afternoon sees extra stops at the Exhibition, at 4:19 and 5:19 p.m.

GO Transit passengers are warned that access to Ontario Place from Exhibition GO station is limited, with a special walking route bypassing the Indy only available on the Saturday. If you are going to Ontario Place on the Friday or the Sunday, you will have to go to Union Station and take the TTC. More details are available here.
