TTC closing Runnymede Station bus terminal for repairs
starting September 12



Update — December 13, 2:59 p.m.: The TTC has revised its construction schedule. Work at the bus terminal continues and buses detour until the spring.


On Monday, September 13, the TTC is starting to work on a project to restore the concrete and upgrade the waterproofing on the bus roadway at Runnymede Station.

Starting tomorrow, Sunday, September 12, the TTC is detouring, or revising, service for buses operating along the 71 Runnymede (to Keele and St. Clair), 71B Runnymede (to Mount Dennis Garage), 77 Swansea and 79 Scarlett Rd routes.

During the construction, some of these buses operate to and from High Park Station.

71 Runnymede (to Keele and St. Clair)

Starting Sunday, September 12, the TTC interlines buses operating along the main 71 branch with buses operating along the 77 Swansea route seven days a week. (Buses serving the main 71 branch usually operate between Gunn’s Loop — on St. Clair Avenue West west of Keele Street — and Runnymede Station.)

Southbound buses operate along their regular route to the entrance to the Runnymede Station bus terminal, then drop off passengers at a temporary stop on Runnymede Road, just north of Bloor Street West. The bus picks up more passengers, then continues southward along the 77 Swansea route.

Northbound buses operating along the 77 Swansea route drop off passengers at a temporary stop on Runnymede Road just north of Bloor Street West, beside Runnymede Station. They then pick up more passengers and continue northward along the 71 Runnymede route. Mondays to Fridays before 7 p.m., buses operating along the 77 Swansea route continue northwards along either the 71 or 71B branches. Mondays to Fridays after 7 p.m. and all day Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, buses continue northward along the 71 branch only.

71B Runnymede (to Mount Dennis Garage)

Mondays to Fridays before 7 p.m., the TTC also interlines buses operating along the 71B branch with buses operating along the 77 Swansea route. (Buses serving the 71B branch usually operate between Mount Dennis Garage and Runnymede Station.)

Southbound buses serving the 71B branch also operate to a temporary stop on Runnymede Road, just north of Bloor Street West, across from Runnymede Station, drop off and pick up passengers, then continue southward along the 77 Swansea route, Mondays to Fridays before 7 p.m. only.

Northbound buses operating along the 77 Swansea route drop off passengers at a temporary stop on Runnymede Road just north of Bloor Street West, beside Runnymede Station. They then pick up more passengers and continue northward along the 71 Runnymede route. Mondays to Fridays before 7 p.m., buses operating along the 77 Swansea route continue northwards along either the 71 or 71B branches. Mondays to Fridays after 7 p.m. and all day Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, buses continue northward along the 71 branch only.

Mondays to Fridays after 7 p.m. and all day Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, buses operating along the 71B branch start and end their trips in High Park Station.

Southbound buses operate to the temporary stop on Runnymede Road, just north of Bloor Street West, across from Runnymede Station, then proceed:

eastward along Bloor West;
northward along High Park Avenue; and then
eastward into High Park Station bus terminal,
ending their trips.

Northbound buses start their trips at High Park Station, then proceed:

southward along High Park Avenue;
westward along Bloor Street West; and then
northward along Runnymede Road to a temporary stop beside Runnymede Station,
resuming their regular route northward along Runnymede.

During the construction, buses serve all regular stops along the route, except their regular stop in Runnymede Station terminal. They also serve temporary stops on Runnymede Road at Bloor Street West and in High Park Station bus terminal. They do not serve any temporary stops along Bloor Street West.

79 Scarlett Rd

Starting Sunday, September 12, buses start and end their trips in High Park Station.

Southbound buses operate to the temporary stop on Runnymede Road, just north of Bloor Street West, across from Runnymede Station, then proceed:

eastward along Bloor West;
northward along High Park Avenue; and then
eastward into High Park Station bus terminal,
ending their trips.

Northbound buses start their trips at High Park Station, then proceed:

southward along High Park Avenue;
westward along Bloor Street West; and then
northward along Runnymede Road to a temporary stop beside Runnymede Station,
resuming their regular route northward along Runnymede.

During the construction, buses serve all regular stops along the route, except their regular stop in Runnymede Station terminal. They also serve temporary stops on Runnymede Road at Bloor Street West and in High Park Station bus terminal. They do not serve any temporary stops along Bloor Street West.

77 Swansea

Starting Sunday, September 12, the TTC interlines buses operating along the route with buses operating along the 71 Runnymede route.

Southbound buses operating along the 77 Swansea route start their trips at a temporary stop on Runnymede Road just north of Bloor Street West, across from Runnymede Station.

(In fact, all the southbound buses arriving at Bloor and Runnymede have finished a southbound trip along the 71 Runnymede route. They drop off and pick up passengers, then continue along the 77 Swansea route.)

Northbound buses operating along the 77 Swansea route drop off passengers at a temporary stop on Runnymede Road just north of Bloor Street West, beside Runnymede Station. They then pick up more passengers and continue northward along the 71 Runnymede route. Mondays to Fridays before 7 p.m., the buses continue northward along either the 71 or 71B branches. Mondays to Fridays after 7 p.m. and all day Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, the buses continue northward along the 71 branch only.


During the work in the Runnymede Station bus terminal, TTC contractors are:

  • removing and replacing the concrete surface beneath the bus roadway;
  • improving the expansion joints, drainage and waterproofing systems of the roadway.

The TTC expects to reopen the bus platform on Sunday, December 19, but other work not affecting bus service likely continues until the end of the year.

At the end of the project, the layout of the platforms and bus roadways will remain the same as they are today.

Most of the work takes place at the street level.

Transit agencies interline buses or streetcars operating along two or more routes that share a common terminal to save resources. By interlining the routes, the transit service reduces the number of drivers and vehicles it requires to provide service along the routes.

For example, southbound buses operating along the 71 Runnymede route arrive at Runnymede Road and Bloor Street West, then continue southward along the 77 Swansea route.

Northbound buses operating along the 77 Swansea route arrive at Runnymede and Bloor, then continue northward along the 71 Runnymede route.
