Construction of future Union GO Bus Terminal blocks Bay, overnight, starting September 29



From 9 p.m. Sunday, September 29 until 5 a.m. Monday, September 30, from 9 p.m. Monday until 5 a.m. Tuesday, October 1 and from 9 p.m. Tuesday until 5 a.m. Wednesday, October 2, the City of Toronto is closing

  • Bay Street between Front Street West and Lake Shore Boulevard West,

as contractors operate a crane at the Metrolinx construction site for the future Union Station GO Bus Terminal at 81 Bay Street.

The TTC has not announced service changes, but is likely detouring buses along these routes, while the street is closed:

  • 6 Bay;
  • 72B Pape via Commissioners and Queens Quay; and
  • 320 Yonge overnight.

The City previously closed this section of Bay Street for the same project and GO and the TTC detoured buses:
