City to debate elimination of bus bays

Toronto — Next month, Toronto city council will debate eliminating 1,300 bus bays across the city. Bus bays are the partial lanes cut into curb lanes that allow traffic to pass while buses stop for passengers.

City councillor Paul Sutherland is up in arms over the proposal, charging it’s meant to force motorists off the road and onto public transit.

He predicts eliminating the bus bays would mean traffic would get held up every time a bus makes a stop. He says the city should be looking at other ways of easing traffic gridlock.

Toronto Transit Commission Chair Brian Ashton says the TTC is just fighting for its fair share of Toronto’s clogged roads.

“Once in, nobody lets you out.”
