College Street wiring upgrades:
TTC detours, April 8 to 11



TTC crews are upgrading overhead streetcar wiring on:

  • College Street between Lansdowne and Ossington Avenues

this weekend.

From 10 p.m. tomorrow, Friday, April 8 until 5 a.m. Monday, April 11, the work prevents the TTC from operating streetcars along this section of the street. It’s detouring streetcars operating along these routes to accommodate the work:

  • 306 Carlton overnight; and
  • 506 Carlton.

Shuttle buses replace the cars between Lansdowne Avenue and Bathurst Street.

You may board the shuttle buses by any door at any time, if you have a proof of payment — such as a transfer or pass. PRESTO card users must board by the front door and pay their fares with cash, since the TTC has not yet equipped buses with PRESTO card readers.

The TTC continues to rewire the street and detour the cars next weekend, from 10 p.m. Friday, April 15 until 5 a.m. Monday, April 18.
