TTC revises routes and services, July 31



The TTC is making minor changes to its services, starting Sunday, July 31.

Among the highlights:

  • The transit agency is restoring service levels along two routes, after having cut the levels during the COVID-19 pandemic:
  • Line 2 Bloor - Danforth subway; and
  • 32 Eglinton West.
  • Since Metrolinx construction of the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit line is ending, fewer work zones block traffic lanes on Eglinton Avenues West. That allows the TTC the opportunity to increase service levels along route 32 even more.

  • The TTC is starting projects to upgrade the tracks at two sites:

  • the intersection of Carlton Street with Church Street; and
  • the intersection of King Street East with Sumach Street.

  • It’s detouring streetcars along these routes during the projects:

  • 304 King overnight;
  • 503 Kingston Rd;
  • 504 King; and
  • 506 Carlton.
  • It’s also detouring buses along this route:
  • 306 Carlton overnight.


Due to fewer riders boarding buses resulting from social distancing and lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic, the TTC continues to suspend service along these express routes:

  • 141 Downtown / Mt Pleasant express;
  • 142 Downtown / Avenue Rd express;
  • 143 Downtown / Beach express;
  • 144 Downtown / Don Valley express; and
  • 145 Downtown / Humber Bay express.

The TTC also continues to suspend service along these routes due to the pandemic:

  • 176 Mimico GO shuttle;
  • 508 Lake Shore.

The TTC continues to suspend service along this route due to Metrolinx construction of the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit line:

  • 103 Mt Pleasant North.

  • TTC: “TTC service adjustments”, here; and
  • Steve Munro: “TTC Service Changes: July 31, 2022”, here.

The TTC is revising service along these routes: Line 2 Bloor - Danforth subway; 32 Eglinton West; 40 Junction - Dundas West; 49 Bloor West; 172 Cherry Beach; 304 King overnight; 306 Carlton overnight; 503 Kingston Rd; 504 King; 504 / 506 King / Carlton shuttle buses; 506 Carlton; 509 Harbourfront.

westward along New Commissioners Street; and then
southward along New Cherry Street to [old] Cherry Street,

Transit agencies often interline transit vehicles along two or more routes that share a common terminal to save resources — human resources [drivers] and physical resources [vehicles]. For example, starting Sunday, July 31, after a westbound bus along the 40A Junction - Dundas West route arrives in the bus terminal at Kipling Station it completes a round trip along the 49 Bloor West route before returning to the terminal. It then starts an eastbound trip along route 40A.
