Lawrence West Station bus terminal construction: TTC revising service along Lawrence Avenue West, starting March 31



The City of Toronto is starting a project to repair the bridge carrying traffic on Lawrence Avenue West over William R. Allen Road. The work zone may block access to part of the TTC bus terminal at Lawrence West Station and the curb lanes of Lawrence West beside the station. Bus bays on-street in front of Lawrence West Station and Bay 5 in the station are unavailable for TTC bus operations

To complicate things further, since Sunday, November 19, 2023, the TTC has closed the bus terminal at Lawrence Station to buses, due to ongoing “Easier Access” construction to install elevators at that station.

Starting Easter, Sunday, March 31, the TTC is revising service along Lawrence Avenue West to accommodate both construction projects, including buses along these routes:

  • 11 Bayview;
  • 52 Lawrence West;
  • 59 Maple Leaf;
  • 109 Ranee;
  • 124 Sunnybrook;
  • 162 Lawrence - Donway;
  • 352 Lawrence West overnight; and
  • 952 Lawrence West express.

Construction at Lawrence West Station and the resulting TTC service changes continue “for approximately nine months”, meaning as late as until December 31.

The TTC says it’s closing the Lawrence Station bus terminal and detouring the buses “for approximately 10 months”, meaning as late as until September 30, 2024. “Easier Access” construction at Lawrence Station continues “until the end of 2024”, meaning as late as December 31**, 2024.
