TTC improves service frequency on bus routes

TORONTO, March 24 /CNW/ - The following service changes to bus

routes began this week to attract new customers and better serve people’s travel needs. Here’s a brief look at the changes introduced this week:

300 BLOOR-DANFORTH - revised routing for early-morning trips
The routing for eastbound trips serving Kipling Station now run

east on Bloor, south on Kipling, west on St. Albans, through Kipling Station, east on St. Albans and north through the Six Points interchange to continue east on Bloor.

510 SPADINA - re-opening of Bay Street tunnel
Full streetcar service on the 510 SPADINA route will resume to

Union Station from Spadina Station. Work on the streetcar tunnel under Bay Street is now complete.

165 WESTON RD NORTH - revised routing at Steeles
Northbound buses which turn around at Steeles will now cross

Steeles and continue north on the newer alignment of Weston Road, then turn south on the old alignment of Weston Road, west on Steeles and south on Barmac.

As a result of the TTC introducing low-floor buses and

re-assigning lift-equipped buses, service changes will affect the following routes:

7 BATHURST, 47 LANSDOWNE, 161 ROGERS RD - Orion VI low-floor buses

(9200 series) are returning to service now that mechanical repairs have been completed. Service is being increased on the routes using low-floor buses to compensate for their lower capacity. The lift-equipped Orion Vs (9400 series) that now run on these routes are being moved to other routes designated in the TTC’s long-term accessibility plan.

42 CUMMER, 29 DUFFERIN, 79 SCARLETT RD, 98 WILLOWDALE-SENLAC, 105

WILSON HEIGHTS - Orion V lift-equipped buses will be used for all Monday-Friday midday service, all weekend service and some Monday-Friday peak-period and evening service. (Note: 79 SCARLETT RD and 98 WILLOWDALE-SENLAC already use lift-equipped buses.)

customers can access the TTC internet site at www.city.toronto.on.ca. Customers can also call 393-4636, check the InfoPosts located at transfer locations on their route, or pick up a service improvements brochure available in all buses, streetcars and subway vehicles.
