TTC revises routes and services, January 4



Update — Wednesday, January 7, 10:55 p.m.: The changes to the 59 Maple Leaf route will not take place. The detour continues until the spring during ongoing Metrolinx construction.


The TTC is making several changes to its services, starting today, Sunday, January 4.

It’s revising express services along the 60 Steeles West route so that express buses operate only between York University and Finch Station.

It’s also introducing its 18-metre (60-foot) articulated buses along the 36 Finch West route.

Since the City of Toronto and several other agencies have wound up various construction projects for the season, the TTC is also restoring regular service along a number of routes, where construction delayed transit vehicles.

With the end of the holiday season, it’s resuming regular service schedules, resulting in more frequent service along multiple routes during rush hours.

And, with students returning to secondary schools, it’s also resuming extra services along routes catering to high-schoolers.

Making other changes to service along routes


36 Finch West

Starting Monday, January 5, the TTC is replacing standard 12-metre (40-foot) buses with 18-metre (60-foot) Novabus LFS articulated — or “bendy” — buses to serve the route Mondays to Fridays.

With the longer buses, the TTC can provide roughly the same amount of service with fewer vehicles. For example, it’s replacing 34 12-metre buses with just 26 18-metre buses during morning rush hours. Just 24 18-metre buses replace 27 12-metre buses midday. 21 replace 29 during afternoon rush hours, 16 replace 17 early evenings and 11 replace 12 late evenings. This frees up more standard buses for the TTC to deploy to other routes.

Since the longer buses carry more passengers, but also require more time at stops to load and unload, the TTC’s adjusting the schedules of the route. At most times of the day, service levels remain the same as currently, but at certain times, the TTC both increases and decreases the frequency of the service.

The TTC continues its program of redesignating the various branches of its routes with new number-and-letter combinations.

Starting Monday, January 5, it starts designating service to Humberwood Loop as the “36A” branch, instead of “36”.

504 King

The TTC continues to operate buses along parts of the route to maintain the reliability of the service Mondays to Fridays before 7 p.m.

Starting Monday, January 5, it operates 33 single CLRV (Canadian Light Rail Vehicle) streetcars along the entire route between Broadview and Dundas West Stations during morning rush hours. To bolster service, it also operates 7 double, “bendy” ALRV (Articulated Light Rail Vehicle) cars along the entire route. It also uses 20 low-floor buses to further support service along the busiest part of the route, between Roncesvalles Avenue / The Queensway / Queen Street West / King Street West and Queen Street East / Broadview Avenue.

Midday, from about 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., it just operates 30 CLRVs.
