Construction on Dundas west of Lansdowne
affects TTC service, starting September 4



TTC passengers who travel along Dundas Street West are getting both good news and bad news.

The good news: The City of Toronto’s project to rebuild Dundas between Lansdowne Avenue and Bathurst Street is ending and streetcars operating along the 505 Dundas route are ending their detour and resuming regular service between Lansdowne and Ossington Avenues.

The bad news: The City’s project now requires contractors to work on the section of Dundas Street West between Howard Park and Lansdowne Avenues.

Starting Sunday, September 4, the TTC’s turning back all streetcars operating along the 306 Carlton overnight, 505 Dundas and 506 Carlton routes at Lansdowne. Shuttle buses replace the 306 and 505 cars between Dundas West Station and Lansdowne and replace the 506 cars between Keele Station and Lansdowne.
