TTC revises service May 10



The TTC is gearing up for summer by resuming seasonal service to the waterfront and other attractions and reducing service to colleges and universities. It’s also increasing service on the 1 Yonge - University - Spadina subway early Monday-to-Friday evenings.


The changes affect these routes: 1 Yonge - University - Spadina subway; 28 Davisville; 29 Dufferin; 32 Eglinton West; 37 Islington; 35 Jane; 38 Highland Creek; 44 Kipling South; 60 Steeles West; 72A Pape via Commissioners; 73 Royal York; 85 Sheppard East; 86 Scarborough; 92 Woodbine South; 97 Yonge; 124 Sunnybrook; 134 Progress; 165 Weston Rd North; 191 Highway 27 Rocket; 192 Airport Rocket; 196 York University Rocket; 300 Bloor - Danforth overnight; 509 Harbourfront; 510 Spadina; 511 Bathurst.


Specifically, the TTC will: increase service along current routes; introduce new seasonal service along current regular routes; resume seasonal service on current regular routes; cancel extra service to colleges and universities; continue extra service to colleges and universities; and adjust the schedules of current routes.

It also starts equipping all buses operating along these routes with bike racks: 17 Birchmount; 25 Don Mills; 303 Don Mills overnight; 34 Eglinton East; 305 Eglinton East overnight; 100 Flemingdon Park; 169 Huntingwood; 54 Lawrence East; 354 Lawrence East overnight; 57 Midland; 116 Morningside; 67 Pharmacy; 167 Pharmacy North; 86 Scarborough; 224 Victoria Park North; 68 Warden; 320 Yonge overnight.


Increase service along current routes

511 Bathurst

Starting Monday, May 11, the TTC operates one more northbound streetcar along the route, leaving Exhibition Loop early Monday-to-Friday mornings at 5:20 a.m. The new streetcar trip reduces the current 45-minute gap between the last northbound bus on the 310 Bathurst overnight route and the first northbound 511 Bathurst daytime streetcar.

The TTC also resumes seasonal service along the route and adjusts the schedule of the route.

300 Bloor - Danforth overnight

Starting Sunday, May 10 (early Monday, May 11), two early-morning southbound buses start their trips at Terminal 3 instead of Terminal 1 to serve all stops at Toronto Pearson International Airport.

73 Royal York

The northbound bus that leaves Royal York Station at 5:10 a.m. Mondays to Fridays operates on the 73C branch and continues to Clairport Crescent instead of Humberline Loop.

Starting Monday, all buses operating along Albion Road on this route start and end their trips at Clairport Crescent instead of Humberline Loop at all times of the week, so the TTC is eliminating the 73 branch between Humberline and Royal York Station.

1 Yonge - University - Spadina subway
