304 / 504A King: Service changes due to construction, starting January 3



The TTC is revising service along the 304 King overnight and 504A King routes during upcoming construction projects, including:

  • track upgrades and intersection improvements at Queen Street West / King Street West / The Queensway / Roncesvalles Avenue;
  • sewer upgrades on Broadview Avenue north of Gerrard Street East; and
  • streetcar platform expansion at Dundas West Station.

As the first step to accommodate the projects, starting Sunday, January 3, the TTC is replacing streetcars with buses west of Dufferin Street:

  • Streetcars operate as far westward as Dufferin, turning back through Dufferin Gate Loop. The cars drop off or pick up passengers at stops on Dufferin between King West and the loop. Streetcars along both the 504A and 504B branches of the route start and end their trips in Dufferin Gate Loop.
  • Buses operate as far eastward as Shaw Street, looping along Douro and Shaw Streets.

Service changes along the 304 / 504A King routes continue until further notice.


Note that since the TTC is increasing streetcar traffic through Dufferin Gate Loop, it’s temporarily extending the path for buses along the 29 Dufferin, 329 Dufferin overnight and 929 Dufferin express routes. The buses operate to and from Princes’ Gates, instead of through Dufferin Gate Loop. They drop off or pick up passengers at stops on Dufferin Street at or across from Springhurst Avenue, instead of stopping in the loop.
