TTC revises services, March 29



The TTC is making a number of changes to its services, starting Sunday, March 29.

It’s making major changes to the 510 Spadina route — replacing the streetcars with buses during upcoming consturction at Spadina Avenue and College Street. It’s borrowing buses from several other routes, including 504 King to provide transit service to Spadina passengers.

While the buses serve Spadina, the TTC’s new Flexity Bombardier streetcars roll along the 509 Harbourfront route. You can use your PRESTO farecard to pay your fare when boarding any of the new streetcars when operating along the route. PRESTO service on 509 Harbourfront ends, when the new streetcars resume operating along 510 Spadina, starting Sunday, May 10.

Also starting Sunday, 509 Harbourfront becomes a “POP” streetcar route. You can board any streetcar at any door at any stop along the route if you have a POP - a proof of payment. Proofs of payment include a transfer or a pass. POP service continues permanently along 509 Harbourfront, even after construction ends on Spadina Avenue.


The TTC is revising service along these routes: 1 Yonge - University subway; 7 Bathurst; 11 Bayview; 14 Glencairn; 17 Birchmount; 24 Victoria Park; 29 Dufferin; 34 Eglinton East; 35 Jane; 36 Finch West; 39 Finch East; 41 Keele; 60 Steeles West; 67 Pharmacy; 89 Weston Rd; 95 York Mills local; 95E York Mills express, 102 Markham Rd; 110 Islington South; 112 West Mall; 135 Gerrard; 143 Downtown / Beach express; 165 Weston Rd North; 195 Jane rocket; 196 York University rocket; 409 Accessible shuttle Dundas West; 504 King, 509 Harbourfront; 510 Spadina; 512 St Clair.

Introducing a new route


409 Accessible Shuttle Dundas West

Since Sunday, March 8, when the TTC shut down the elevator at Dundas West Station for major repairs, Wheel-Trans has been providing shuttle buses linking Dundas West with Dufferin Station. The buses allow passengers requiring an elevator to board to ride to or from Dundas West Station to continue or finish their trips.

Buses operate every 20 minutes every day.

Shuttle service continues until the Dundas West Station elevator reopens in July.
