Brampton Transit revises bus stops at York University,
starting May 27

Oooops! — We should have caught this one, when we reported that York Region Transit was relocating its stops at York.

If you’re used to Züming to and from York University, this news is for you.

Brampton Transit buses started dropping off and picking up passengers at new stops on York University’s Keele Campus to accommodate upcoming subway construction, last Friday, May 27.

BT also revised the eastbound route for buses operating along the 501 / 501A Züm Queen route.

501 / 501A Züm Queen

Starting Friday, May 27, eastbound buses operate along their former route to Jane Street and Steeles Avenue West, then proceed:

eastward along Steeles;
southward along Keele Street;
westward along York Boulevard; and then
northward along Ian Macdonald Boulevard to new stops.

Since westbound 501 Züm Queen buses combine service with westbound York Region Transit buses operating along the Viva orange route to provide frequent service for passengers traveling along Highway 7 as far west as Martin Grove Road, the buses share the same stop at York. The buses pick up passengers on the east side of Ian Macdonald Boulevard across from Vanier Lane.

Westbound buses operating along the 501A Züm Queen express via Highway 407 route pick up passengers at a separate stop further north on the west side of Ian Macdonald, north of The Chimneystack Road.

The TTC is extending the 1 Yonge - University - Spadina subway northwestward from Downsview Station to York University and the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre. It will build an entrance to a new subway station on the west end of the Harry W. Arthurs Commons, near Ian Macdonald Boulevard.
