TTC confirms: (almost) regular service during G20 summit,
from June 25 until June 27



The TTC plans to operate its regular service during the upcoming G20 Summit, except for some detouring some bus and streetcar routes serving downtown Toronto.

The G20 summit — a meeting of the 20 nations with the world’s biggest economies — takes place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on Saturday, June 26 and Sunday, June 27. The summit means areas of high security throughout downtown Toronto. Although police and other security officials will restrict access to a primary security zone close to the convention centre, a large force of police officers will be present throughout a wider, secondary security zone — probably including the entire area between Yonge Street, Queens Quay, Spadina Avenue and King Street.

TTC subways will operate as usual — all stations and all lines will be open.

However, buses operating along the 6 Bay, 72A Pape via Commissioners and 320 Yonge overnight routes will detour so that the buses travel on streets beyond the secondary security zone from Friday, June 25 until Sunday, June 27. Buses operating along the 97B Yonge route and the buses replacing regular streetcar service along the 503 Kingston Rd route will also detour, but only on Friday, June 25, because buses don’t serve those two routes on weekends.

Streetcars operating along the 509 Harbourfront and 510 Spadina won’t stop at Queens Quay Station and passengers cannot board or exit the cars at that station from Friday, June 25 until Sunday, June 27. Streetcars operating along the 504 King route, however, will continue regular service throughout the three-day summit.

The TTC will follow the advice of police and alter these plans if security concerns require it to change services or routes further. Security issue may also require the TTC to delay or temporarily detour buses and streetcars operating along other routes in downtown Toronto, particularly streetcar routes. The TTC intends to communicate any changes to its passengers as promptly as it can.

All services, including all GO Transit services, at Union Station continue as normal throughout the G20. Passengers may have to enter or exit the station on Bay Street, instead of Front Street West on Saturday and Sunday.
