TTC revises service, March 29



On Sunday, March 29, the TTC is making minor changes its services for the spring. For the most part this time, the TTC is adjusting some routes to avoid some duplication or correct inconsistencies in its network that resulted from the massive changes in November.


The changes affect these routes: 24 Victoria Park; 39 Finch East; 65 Parliament; 142 Downtown - Avenue Rd Express; 161 Rogers Rd.


Specifically, the TTC is: increasing service along current routes; revising current routes; decreasing the frequency of service along current routes; and canceling branches of current routes.


Increasing service along current routes

39 Finch East

Starting Monday, March 30, buses operating along the express branches of the route make one more stop. All westbound express buses stop at Wayside Drive. All eastbound express buses stop at Adirondack Gate.

Adirondack Gate and Wayside Drive are between Kennedy and Birchmount Roads. The Toronto Transit Commission approved adding this stop at its meeting of February 18.

161 Rogers Rd

Starting Monday, March 30, the TTC is operating one more north- and westbound bus along the route late Monday-to-Friday evenings (early Tuesday-to-Saturday mornings). The bus leaves Ossington Station at 1:40 a.m. and arrives at Jane Street and Alliance Avenue about 2:08 a.m.


Revising current routes

142 Downtown / Avenue Rd Express

Decrease the frequency of current routes
