Crane operations on Queen Street West:
TTC detour, February 6 and 7



The TTC is removing power to the overhead streetcar wiring on

  • Queen Street West just west of Yonge Street

during crane operations this weekend.

It’s detouring streetcars operating along these routes, while power is off:

  • 301 Queen overnight; and
  • 501 Queen.

Shuttle buses replace the cars, operating between Bathurst and Jarvis Streets.

Shuttle buses replacing streetcars open all doors at all stops, so passengers can board with a proof of payment. Since the TTC has not yet equipped buses with PRESTO devices, card users must pay with cash, tickets or tokens at the front door and take a transfer from the driver as proof of payment.
