O'Connor Drive construction:
TTC detours start August 25



Starting Tuesday, August 25, City of Toronto contractors start work on a project to repair the sidewalks and repave the roadways on:

  • O’Connor Drive between Pape and Broadview Avenues.

The TTC is detouring buses operating along these routes, during the project:

  • 8 Broadview; and
  • 100 Flemingdon Park.

Due to the many seniors living near Broadview and O’Connor, the TTC will also operate special Wheel-Trans shuttle buses between O’Connor / Pape Avenue and Broadview Station.

Construction and detours continue until September 20.

Wheel-Trans shuttle

From Tuesday, August 25 until Sunday, September 20, the TTC operates two Wheel-Trans shuttles through the construction zone to help seniors and others with mobility restrictions to travel to and from the construction zone.

Alternate buses loop clockwise or counterclockwise through the area.

Clockwise buses start their trips at Broadview Station, then proceed:

westward along Erindale Avenue;
northward along Broadview Avenue;
eastward along O’Connor Drive;
southward along Pape Avenue;
westward along Cosburn Avenue;
southward along Broadview Avenue; and then
eastward into Broadview Station terminal,
ending their trips.

Passengers may “flag” the shuttle buses to stop, by waving at the driver. You can flag the buses anywhere along their route.

The shuttles operate every 10 to 15 minutes from about 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. each day, but, due to the construction, also expect delays.
