Thorncliffe Park buses head for Donlands Station,
starting June 26



Update — Tuesday, September 6, 10:03 a.m.: The buses have resumed regular service to and from Pape Station, instead of Donlands Station.


The TTC is continuing its project to upgrade Pape Station. This week, contractors start repaving the roadways inside the bus terminal, requiring the TTC to detour buses operating along the 81 Thorncliffe Park route. Although the construction doesn’t start until Monday, June 27, the TTC starts detouring the buses tomorrow, Sunday, June 26.

(The absence of the Thorncliffe Park buses also conveniently makes room for the shuttle buses that replace the 2 Bloor - Danforth subway between St. George and Pape Stations tomorrow morning.)
