Queen Street Shuttle Buses Confirmed

Update, Saturday, March 1, 10 a.m.: Regular service resumed at 12:03 a.m. today.

Update, Thursday, February 28, 8 p.m.: Transit Toronto visitor Robert Lubinski reports that, although eastbound buses carry the destination sign, “McCaul”, they actually “operate eastward along Queen Street West, southward on University Avenue, westward along Richmond Street West, northward along Peter Street and then westward along Queen…” The layover point appears to be on Richmond between Simcoe and Duncan Streets.

Update, 7 p.m: Reader Ian Trider has pointed out that the TTC’s shuttle bus route map doesn’t quite cover the complete route of the shuttle buses. Buses are running between McCaul and Shaw, turning in the west by following the regular on-street loop for the 63 Ossington route: southward along Shaw Street, eastward along King Street West, southward along Strachan Avenue, westward along Douro Street and then northward along Shaw to Queen.

Reader Raymond Lee passes on the following:

There is an update on the Transit Services affected by the 6 alarm fire that occurred on February 20, 2008.

Queen streetcars are still diverting via Shaw street, King Street West, and Spadina Ave in both directions. Now the TTC is providing Shuttle Bus Services on Queen Street between Shaw Street and Spadina Avenue. They are diverting around the closed section of Queen Street as follows:

Eastbound: East on Queen Street to Bathurst St, South on Bathurst St, East along Adelaide Street, north along Portland Street, and east along Queen Street to Spadina Avenue

Westbound: West along Queen from Spadina to Portland Street, South on Portland to Richmond Street, West along Richmond Street, North on Bathurst St, and west on Queen St to Shaw.
