Buses replace streetcars along Dundas West,
starting April 4



Update — Friday, August 5, 4:46 p.m.: The TTC resumed streetcar service along Dundas Street West between Ossington and Spadina Avenues today.


The City of Toronto is continuing its project to improve Dundas Street West between Dovercourt Road and Bathurst Street.

Last year, City contractors replaced the watermains along the street. This year, the City will upgrade the “streetscape” — repair the roadway, install new sidewalks and make other changes to make the neighbourhood more attractive to residents, business operators, visitors and shoppers.

Starting Monday, April 4, the TTC is detouring streetcars operating along the 505 Dundas route while the work proceeds. Shuttle buses replace the cars.

Construction continues until the fall.
