TTC revises services, January 3



The TTC is revising its services, starting Sunday, January 3.

It’s restoring service along most bus and streetcar routes to pre-pandemic service levels, as the number of riders aboard TTC vehicles increases. However, the transit agency also continues to reduce service, as it projects lower ridership along certain routes. This allows it to continue allocating flexible-supplemental service to adjust to changing conditions and travel demands. The TTC continues to operate subway service at reduced levels, as it does not expect subway ridership to recover until later in 2021.

The transit agency is also restoring express bus service along most corridors, except for 903 Kennedy - Scarborough Centre express, 924 Victoria Park express, 944 Kipling South express and 989 Weston express. It also continues to suspend Downtown Express routes (140-series).

Staff continue to monitor ridership and travel patterns in early 2021 to guide their planning for service changes in spring as the city continues reopening and recovering from the effects of the pandemic.

This month, the TTC is making service changes to:

It also continues to suspend services along certain routes, due to the pandemic.

Transit agencies save resources - human resources, meaning drivers and physical resources, meaning vehicles - by interlining vehicles serving two or more routes with a common terminal. For example, until recently, after arriving in Runnymede Station terminal, a southbound bus along the 71 Runnymede route continued southward along the 77 Swansea route. After completing a round trip along route 77, the bus returns to Runnymede Station, then proceeds northward along route 71.
