Bay Street closed for filming tomorrow



Note: Thanks to Transit Toronto reader Robert Lubinski for the “heads-up” about this detour.


The City of Toronto will close Bay Street between Queen Street West and Lake Shore Boulevard West on Sunday, September 21 during a film shoot on the street.

The TTC will detour buses on the 6 Bay and 172 Cherry Street routes while Bay Street is closed.

6 Bay

From noon until about 10:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 21, southbound buses operate along their regular route to Bay and Queen Streets, then detour:

westward along Queen Street West;
southward along York Street;
westward along Richmond Street West;
southward along University Avenue and York Street; and then
eastward along Queens Quay West to Bay Street,
resuming their regular route eastward along Queens Quay.

Northbound buses operate along their regular route to Queens Quay West and Bay Street, then detour:

westward along Queens Quay;
northward along York Street; and then
eastward along Queen Street West to Bay Street,
resuming their regular route northward along Bay.

172 Cherry Street

Eastbound buses operate along their regular route.

From noon on Sunday, September 21 until 1 a.m. on Monday, September 22, westbound buses operate along their regular route to Wellington Street West and Bay Street, then detour:

westward along Wellington;
southward along University Avenue; and then
eastward along Front Street West to the stop east of Bay Street,
ending their trips.


Reader Robert Lubinski suggests that this diversion may be the first time since the TTC was building the University subway line in the 1960s that transit vehicles have operated southward along this part of York Street. (The TTC diverted transit service in both directions along York for a while when they were tunneling under Queen Street West and University Avenue.) What do you think? Do you know of any other occasions that buses or streetcars travelled southward along this part of York?
