TTC revises services, January 6



The TTC is decreasing service on many routes — mostly not during rush hours — starting today, Sunday, January 6.

According to Steve Munro, “The TTC will make a small number of service changes in January 2013 that will reduce service on a few routes during underutilized periods. This change is required because the service improvements in fall 2012 overshot the budgetary mark, and the January 2013 service budget does not cover all of the additions.”

Tomorrow, Monday, January 7, the TTC also increases regular rush-hour service on many more routes as the holiday schedule period ends and regular service resumes.
