TTC Service Changes: March 26, 1995

501 QUEEN and 507 LONG BRANCH

Starting Sunday, March 26, we’re combining our 501 QUEEN and 507 LONG BRANCH streetcar routes. Streetcars on the extended 501 QUEEN route will now run between Neville Park Loop on Queen Street just west of Victoria Park, and Long Branch Loop at Lake Shore Blvd. & Brown’s Line, providing a new no-transfer service between downtown and Lake Shore Blvd. in southern Etobicoke.

Every other 501 car leaving Neville Park is scheduled to continue past Humber Loop to Long Branch. Service levels on both Queen Street and Lake Shore Blvd. will remain virtually unchanged. An additional eastbound stop will be added at Humber Loop for streetcars heading to downtown and Neville Park from Long Branch.

Don’t forget - the Proof of Payment (POP) system will be extended the portion of 501 QUEEN service running on Lake Shore Blvd. If you have a valid transfer or pass, you can board the streetcar at the center/rear doors. Customers paying a fare - ticket, token or cash - must enter by the front doors only and will receive a transfer overprinted with PROOF OF PAYMENT. Be sure to get a transfer even if you need it to continue your trip on another route.

80 QUEENSWAY

Starting Sunday, March 26, the route will be extended from Humber Loop to Keele Station providing a direct connection with the subway and a new service on Parkside Drive. Buses will now run between Sherway and Keele Station via Queensway, Colborne Lodge Dr., Lake Shore Blvd., and Parkside Drive. Note that buses will no longer enter Umber Loop in either direction. Connections with 501 QUEEN streetcars can be made at Queensway & Windermere, and with 66 PRINCE EDWARD buses at Queensway and Stephen Drive.

Service on the route will continue to be provided 18 hours a day, 7 days a week; buses will now run every 15 minutes during rush hours and every 30 minutes at other times.

SCHEDULE ADHERENCE

Starting Sunday, March 26, a pilot project will be introduced on 20 routes to provide better customer service by improving schedule adherence.

After 9:00 p.m. every night, we’ll be tightening up the trip running times by providing a 4-minute wait at the subway loading location in the subway station. Along with providing added convenience to customers when boarding the bus at the subway station, this will help to improve schedule adherence over the entire route, providing a double dose of customer service. Wherever possible, clockface services will continue to be provided.

The routes being tested are 11 BAYVIEW, 12 KINGSTON RD., 14 GLENCAIRN, 20 CLIFFSIDE, 23 DAWES, 36 FINCH WEST, 39 FINCH EAST, 40 JUNCTION, 42 CUMMER, 58 MALTON, 66 PRINCE EDWARD, 68 WARDEN, 76 ROYAL YORK SOUTH, 87 COSBURN, 95 YORK MILLS, 100 FLEMINGDON PARK, 107 KEELE NORTH, 111 EAST MALL, 131 NUGGET and 161 ROGERS RD.

If the the is successful, the project will be expanded to other routes on the system.
