TTC Rolls Out Timed Transfer on St. Clair; Opening Ceremony at 10:30 a.m.



From Canadian Newswire:

Media Advisory - Shop till you drop on St. Clair as TTC introduces Time Based Transfer pilot project

TORONTO, Aug. 4 /CNW/ - With the TTC’s new pilot Time Based Transfer program, you can stop and smell the roses along St. Clair Avenue West. Or shop a little, enjoy a coffee or just walk a little ‘cause it’s better for you. And then hop back on the streetcar using your St. Clair Time Based Transfer. It’s good for up to 2 hours of travel along St. Clair.

TTC Commissioner Joe Mihevc will officially launch the Time Based Transfer project, and outline how it works, at St. Clair West Station, streetcar level, on Thursday, August 4 at 10:30 a.m.

With a Time Based Transfer, customers can hop on-and-off the 512 route for up to two hours. For example, they can shop at St. Clair and Bathurst, hop on the 512 for coffee in Corsa Italia then back on the streetcar to the subway at Bathurst.

Visit the stores all along St. Clair from Yonge Street to Gunns Loop (west of Keele Street).

It’s your time, plan your own itinerary!

The pilot project will be in effect for the duration of the construction along St. Clair, which is scheduled to be completed in December, 2006.

The Time Based Transfer is valid for boarding at any stop for either direction. Show your Time Based Transfer to the driver each time you board. On routes other than the 512 St. Clair, the transfer is valid at connecting route transfer points only, until the expiry time shown.
