Toronto Transit Commission meets,
June 22

The Toronto Transit Commission meets Monday, June 22 at 1 p.m. in Committee Room #2, Second Floor, City Hall, 100 Queen Street West.

During the meeting, the commissioners will consider a staff report establishing a “ten-minute-or-better” network of TTC services. This network of bus, streetcar and rapid transit routes and lines would provide passengers across Toronto with frequent service, with transit vehicles picking up passengers every ten minutes — or even more frequently — at all times of the week, except overnight. Commission chair, Councillor Josh Colle and the TTC’s deputy chief executive officer, Chris Upfold introduced this network at a media event Monday, June 15.

The commission is the TTC’s board of directors. It oversees matters of policy and planning, building, maintaining and operating the TTC system and expanding its services and facilities.

Commissioners include City of Toronto councillors and members of the public.

During the meeting, the commissioners will discuss, among other items, staff reports recommending that they approve:

  • the “ten-minute-or-better” network of routes and lines. You can read the report here. (.pdf)
