Earlier plans to rebuild the King-Queen-Roncesvalles (KQR) intersection led the TTC to anticipate significant congestion at Dufferin Loop due to increased streetcar use. As a result, the TTC scheduled all 929 DUFFERIN EXPRESS buses to operate to Princes’ Gate Loop at all hours of the day, running express from Springhurst Drive to Princes’ Gate Loop. When the planned reconstruction of the KQR intersection was delayed to 2020, the announcement came too quickly to cancel the service alteration, so the extension continued. All buses are scheduled to operate to Princes’ Gate for the duration of the March-April board period, until Saturday, May 11, 2019.

In addition to this, buses on the 929 DUFFERIN EXPRESS route serve both the nearside and farside stops at Eglinton Avenue. This change is made as a result of pedestrian restrictions due to construction of the EGLINTON-CROSSTOWN LRT.
