Brampton Transit revises route
to connect with TTC Line 1 subway

2017-001283_Zum_To_Subway_WebTile.jpgBrampton Transit is revising its 501 / 501A / 501C Züm Queen service so that passengers can directly connect with the TTC’s Line 1 Yonge - University subway at Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Station.

Starting Sunday, December 17, when the TTC opens its subway extension to Vaughan, passengers can exit the buses at the new Vaughan Metropolitan Centre vivastation / Züm station in the centre of the roadway on Highway 7 beside the subway station. From that covered structure on the roadway, passengers can descend to the concourse level of the TTC station by elevator, escalator or stairway.

BT is also revising the path the buses follow to and from York University’s Keele campus.

You must pay a second fare when transferring between BT buses and the subway.
