Humber Loop track work starts January 25
Transfer-free ride aboard streetcars

Update — Friday, January 29, 5:50 p.m.: Apparently, construction only continues until 5 a.m. Monday, February 1, when regular service resumes and most passengers again have to transfer at Humber Loop.

Update — Thursday, January 28, 4:46 p.m.: The TTC has extended the construction period. Work at Humber Loop continues until Saturday, February 13, instead of ending Friday, January 29.

From 5 a.m. tomorrow, Monday, January 25 until 11:59 p.m. Friday, January 29 Saturday, February 13 5 a.m. Monday, February 1. TTC crews are making “urgent rail repairs” to one of the turn-around tracks at Humber Loop. Humber Loop remains open to passengers, streetcars and buses during the work.

While crews repair the track, streetcars operating along the 501 Queen route again provide continuous service through the loop. At Humber Loop, passengers do not have to transfer and can remain aboard the streetcar on which they started their trip. However, operators will switch vehicles at the loop.

During construction, the TTC operates streetcar in two overlapping sections:

  • west end of the routes: Streetcars operate between Long Branch Loop and Roncesvalles Avenue.
  • east end of the route: Streetcars operate between Neville Park Loop and Humber Loop.

Passengers must transfer to eastbound streetcars at Roncesvalles Avenue or transfer to westbound streetcars at Humber Loop to continue their trips.

Starting 5 a.m. Monday, February 1, streetcars again resume the temporary service pattern that started Sunday, January 3:

  • Every day, from 5 a.m. until 10 p.m., the TTC splits the route into two sections, with most cars operating between Long Branch and Humber loops or between Neville Park and Humber loops. Passengers must transfer between the two sections of the route at Humber Loop.
  • Every day, from 10 p.m. until 2 a.m., the TTC schedules some streetcars to operate through from Neville Park to Long Branch, while some trips turn back at Humber Loop.
  • Every day, from 2 until 5 a.m., the TTC provides its usual night service along the 301 Queen overnight route, with all cars operating between Neville Park and Long Branch.

Track work does not affect buses operating along the 66A Prince Edward and 80B Queensway routes and the buses continue to drop off or pick up passengers in the loop.

Customer-service staff will be available at the loop to help passengers find their way.
