Increasing service along routes


300 Bloor - Danforth overnight

Starting Tuesday, February 17, the TTC operates an eastbound bus on a new trip along the route early Monday mornings. The bus leaves Bloor Street West east of The East Mall at 5:33 a.m. Mondays. It ends its trip in Broadview Station.

By operating a bus on this new trip, the TTC makes its overnight service more consistent, matching its Sunday overnight schedule with its Monday-to-Friday overnight schedule.

37 Islington

Starting Tuesday, February 17, the TTC operates extra northbound buses along the route from Islington Station from about 2:30 until 3 p.m. The extra buses start rush-hour service along the route and increase the frequency of northbound service.

12 Kingston Rd

Starting Tuesday, February 17, the TTC operates westbound buses on two new extra trips along the route for passengers traveling from Blessed Cardinal Newman Catholic High School. The buses leave Kingston Road just west of Brimley Road at 2:45 and 2:55 p.m. Monday-to-Friday school days.

It also operates south- and eastbound buses on new trips from Victoria Park Station Mondays to Fridays during rush hours, increasing the frequency of service along the route.

116 Morningside

Starting Tuesday, February 17, the TTC operates a bus on a new south- and westbound trip along the route early Monday-to-Friday mornings.

The bus leaves Morningside Avenue south of Neilson Road at 4:50 a.m. It ends its trip in Kennedy Station bus terminal in time for passengers to connect with the first westbound train along the 2 Bloor - Danforth subway line. The train leaves Kennedy at 5:43 a.m.

The TTC is also adjusting the schedule for buses operating along the route.

85 Sheppard East

In mid-March, the Toronto Zoo remains open until 7 p.m. Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, so the TTC is extending the hours of service for buses that drop off and pick up passengers at the zoo. Starting Saturday, March 14, the last bus leaves the zoo at about 7 p.m. for Don Mills Station and Rouge Hill GO Station.

86 Scarborough local

During March break, the Toronto Zoo temporarily revises its hours and remains open until 7 p.m. seven days a week. From Monday, March 16 until Friday, March 20, the last bus leaves the Zoo at about 7 p.m. for Kennedy Station.

The TTC is also increasing the frequency of service along the local and express branches of the route.


Decreasing service along a route


25 Don Mills

Friday, February 13 is the last day that the TTC operates the extra northbound bus that usually leaves Overlea Boulevard west of Don Mills Road at 3:28 p.m. Mondays to Fridays. (The bus serves passengers traveling from Marc Garneau Collegiate Institute and Valley Park Middle School.)

It’s reassigning the bus to operate northbound from Don Mills Station.

The TTC is also adjusting the schedule for buses operating along the route.


Increasing the frequency of service along routes


100 Flemingdon Park

Since the City of Toronto canceled a construction project on Broadview Avenue, the TTC is increasing the frequency along the route and restoring service to previous levels.

Starting Tuesday, February 17, buses drop off or pick up passengers at stops Mondays to Fridays during morning rush hours:

  • west of Don Mills Road / Eglinton Avenue East every 13 minutes, instead of every 14minutes 40 seconds;
  • east and south of Don Mills / Eglinton every 3 minutes 15 seconds, instead of every 3 minutes 40 seconds; and
  • between St. Dennis Drive / Linkwood Lane and Grenoble Drive / Spanbridge Road, where buses operate along the separate 100A and 100B branches of the route, every 13 minutes, instead of every 14 minutes 40 seconds.

The TTC is operating articulated - or “bendy” - buses along local branches of the route at all times Mondays to Fridays. Since the 18-metre (or 60-foot) articulated buses are longer than regular 12-metre (or 40-foot) buses, they carry more passengers. Accordingly, the TTC is decreasing the frequency of service along the local branches of the route.

Buses drop off or pick up passengers at express stops along the route:

  • every 14½ minutes, instead of every 20 minutes, from about 2:30 until 3 p.m.

Decreasing the frequency of service along routes


41 Keele local

The TTC is operating articulated - or “bendy” - buses along local branches of the route at all times Mondays to Fridays. Since the 18-metre (or 60-foot) articulated buses are longer than regular 12-metre (or 40-foot) buses, they carry more passengers. Accordingly, the TTC is decreasing the frequency of service along the route.

Starting Tuesday, February 17, buses drop off or pick up passengers at local stops along the route:

  • every 10 minutes 45 seconds, instead of every 8½ minutes, during morning rush hours;

To provide extra service to passengers, the TTC is also increasing the frequency of service along the express branch of the route.

504 King

The TTC is increasing the running time - the time that drivers need to complete a round trip along the route Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Increasing the running time, the TTC says, increases the reliability of the service. However, it also slightly decreases the frequency of service along the route.

Starting Sunday, February 15, buses drop off or pick up passengers at stops along the route:

  • every 12 minutes, instead of every 11 minutes, Sundays and holidays before 8 a.m.;
  • every 6 minutes, instead of every 5 minutes 40 seconds, from about 8 a.m. until noon;
  • every 6 minutes 15 seconds, instead of every 6 minutes, from about noon until 7 p.m.;

  • every 7 minutes 15 seconds, instead of every 6 minutes 45 seconds, from about 7 until 10 p.m.; and
  • every 9 minutes, instead of every 8 minutes, after about 10 p.m.

The TTC is also making another change to service along the route.

165 Weston Rd North

The TTC is increasing the running time - the time that drivers need to complete a round trip along the route Mondays to Fridays. Increasing the running time, the TTC says, increases the reliability of the service. However, it also slightly decreases the frequency of service along the route.

During morning rush hours, starting Tuesday, February 17, buses drop off or pick up passengers at stops:

  • every 41 minutes 20 seconds, instead of every 40 minutes, on Weston Road north of Major Mackenzie Drive West, on Canada Drive, on City View Boulevard south of Canada, on Vellore Woods Boulevard north of Ashberry Boulevard and on Ashberry, where only buses serving the 165F branch operate;
  • every 41 minutes 20 seconds, instead of every 40 minutes, on Major Mackenzie Drive West east of Weston Road, where only buses serving the 165D branch operate;

Mondays to Fridays from about 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., buses drop off or pick up passengers at these stops:

  • every 4½ minutes, instead of every 4 minutes 15 seconds.

(Buses serve stops between Weston and Wilson Station even more frequently than this, since the TTC also operates unblended service along the 96C branch of the 96 Wilson route at the same time as the blended service.)

During afternoon rush hours, buses serve stops:

  • every 46 minutes, instead of every 41½ minutes, north and east of Weston and Ashberry, where buses operate along the separate 165D and 165F branches;
  • every 23 minutes, instead of every 20 minutes 45 seconds, southbound on Weston between Ashberry and Ormont and northbound between Steeles West and Major Mackenzie West, where buses serving both the 165D and 165F branches operate; and
