Streetcars return to Queen West / McCaul, October 30

City of Toronto and TTC contractors have finished a project to replace the streetcar tracks and sidewalks at the intersection of

  • Queen Street West with McCaul Street

— one week earlier than they planned.

Starting 5 a.m. Monday, October 30, the TTC resumes streetcar service through the intersection along these routes:

  • 301 Queen overnight; and
  • 501 Queen.

It’s cancelling service along the 301J / 501J Queen / Jarvis shuttle-bus route. Sunday, October 29 is the last day that buses operate along the route.

Due to an ongoing shortage of streetcars, the TTC continues to operate buses along the 502 Downtowner route. With the end of construction at Queen West / McCaul, the buses resume their regular west-end loop along University Avenue, Richmond Street West and Duncan Street. (When streetcars resume, they’ll operate along McCaul Street between McCaul Loop and Queen.)

Also starting 5 a.m. Monday, October 30, the TTC starts a project to replace the tracks

  • on Queen Street East west of Broadview Avenue.

The TTC further detours streetcars along the two routes and operates shuttle buses through the construction zone.

The TTC continues to replace streetcars with buses west of Roncesvalles Avenue due to ongoing construction on Lake Shore Boulevard West and The Queensway and in Humber Loop.

Buses operating along the temporary 501L Queen / Long Branch shuttle route continue to drop off or pick up passengers between Long Branch and Dufferin Gate loops.

Buses operating along the temporary 501M Queen / Marine Parade route continue to drop off or pick up passengers between Park Lawn Road and Windermere Avenue.

And, with the end of construction at Queen West / McCaul, starting early Tuesday, October 31, TTC buses operating along the 301L Queen / Long Branch overnight shuttle-bus route again operate to and from Dufferin Gate Loop, instead of to and from Queen Street East / Victoria Street.

This project brought the track infrastructure to a state-of-good-repair and improved the sidewalks to comply with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. The City and TTC originally scheduled the project to continue until November 5.
