Buses replace streetcars along Kingston Road,
starting August 4



Update — August 11: Buses continue to operate through Bingham Loop.


On Tuesday, August 4, the TTC is starting a project to upgrade the tracks inside Bingham Loop — stretching between Victoria Park and Bingham Avenues, just north of Kingston Road.

During the project, buses replace streetcars along Kingston Road and the TTC will also revise other routes that operate through the loop.


The project affects these routes: 12 Kingston Rd; 22A Coxwell; 322 Coxwell overnight; 324 Victoria Park overnight; 502 Downtowner; 503 Kingston Rd tripper.

When construction starts, buses will loop on the street instead of through Bingham Loop. Transit Toronto will update this post with details of the exact routing when they are available.

502 Downtowner

Starting Tuesday, August 4, buses replace streetcars. When construction starts, the buses will loop on the street instead of through Bingham Loop. Transit Toronto will update this post with details of the exact routing at Bingham Loop when they are available.

Because of another construction project at Queen Street East and Church Street the buses operate along a slightly different route than the streetcars have been using since the Church - Queen project started.

Eastbound buses operate along the regular route to Queen and King Streets East, then proceed:

eastward along Queen East;
southward along Jarvis Street;
westward along Richmond Street West;
northward along Victoria Street to Queen East,
resuming their regular route westward along Queen.

Buses operate every 12 minutes during Monday-to-Friday rush hours and every 20 minutes from about 9:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. Mondays to Fridays. Buses operating on the 502 Downtowner and 503 Kingston Rd tripper routes serve passengers wanting to travel along Kingston Road between Victoria Park Avenue and Queen Street East every six minutes during Monday-to-Friday rush hours.
