As part of the 2022 Annual Service Plan, service on Cherry Street is restored following the restructuring of the former 121 FORT YORK-ESPLANADE bus route into the new 121 ESPLANADE-RIVER. Buses operate the loop east on Front, north on Yonge, west on Wellington, south on Bay, east on Queens Quay, north on Parliament, east on Front and south on Cherry towards Cherry Beach. Westbound buses run north via Cherry, west on Mill, south on Parliament, west on Queens Quay and north on Bay, looping via Front, Yonge and Wellington. However, due to construction at the intersection of Cherry Street and Lake Shore Boulevard, buses divert via Lake Shore Boulevard East in both directions from Parliament to Cherry, without serving the Distillery District.

Service operates 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. weekdays, Sundays and holidays and 9 a.m. to midnight on Saturdays from mid-May to October. Buses operate out of Eglinton (Comstock) Garage with the use of the Nova LFS and BYD K9M low floor buses instead of Birchmount Garage where the previous 121D FORT YORK-ESPALANDE buses did so.








Monday to Friday, daytime and early evenings (10 a.m. to 10 p.m.)
Weekends and holidays, 18 hours a day
Except Sunday late evenings

As the first portion of the new Cherry Street is opened, buses will operate along Old Cherry Street between Lake Shore Boulevard East and Commissioners Street, then east on Commissioners Street, and then on the new alignment of Cherry Street south to Cherry Beach Loop. The remainder of New Cherry Street is expected to open in 2023. Buses will continue to bypass the Distillery District for the rest of the 2022 operating season.
