TTC revises routes and services,
September 4



As summer end and everyone heads back to school and back to work, the TTC is revising its routes and to improve frequency levels and reliability.

It’s increasing subway service levels Mondays to Fridays during morning rush hours to accommodate demand. Also, Line 1 Yonge - University trains that usually start and end their trips in St Clair West Station during morning rush hours, now operate as far north as Glencairn Station. This affects about half of the trains operating along the line and improves the frequency of service for passengers boarding trains at Glencairn and Eglinton West Stations.

The TTC is also improving or revising several bus routes, including:

  • 24E Victoria Park express: More express stops;
  • 34 Eglinton East: New branches to improve reliability during construction of the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit line;
  • 74 Mt Pleasant: Temporarily extended to Doncliffe Loop to replace 103 Mt Pleasant North service during construction of the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit line;
  • 100 Flemingdon Park: Fewer branches to improve reliability during construction of the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit line;
  • 102 Markham Rd: Revised loop at Steeles Avenue East;
  • 103 Mt Pleasant North: Temporarily replaced by extended 74 Mt Pleasant service during construction of the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit line;
  • 131 Nugget: More express service
  • 134 Progress: Temporary route change at north end to avoid delays from freight trains.
  • 186 Wilson rocket: More express stops;
  • 191 Highway 27 rocket: New branches to improve service;
  • 195 Jane rocket: More express stops.


The TTC is revising service along these routes: 1 Yonge - University subway, 2 Bloor - Danforth subway, 3 Scarborough rapid transit; 7 Bathurst; 8 Broadview; 9 Bellamy; 20 Cliffside; 24E Victoria Park express; 28 Bayview North; 34 Eglinton East; 37 Islington; 41 Keele; 41E Keele express; 54 Lawrence East; 59 Maple Leaf; 62 Mortimer; 71 Runnymede; 74 Mt Pleasant; 77 Swansea; 79 Scarlett Rd; 86E Scarborough express; 87 Cosburn; 89 Weston; 90 Vaughan; 100 Flemingdon Park; 102 Markham Rd; 103 Mt Pleasant North; 121 Fort York - Esplanade; 131 Nugget; 134 Progress; 186 Wilson rocket; 191 Highway 27 rocket; 192 Airport rocket; 195 Jane rocket; 307 Bathurst overnight, 310 Bathurst overnight (former), 322 Coxwell overnight; 501 Queen; 509 Harbourfront; 511 Bathurst; 512 St Clair.

Specifically; the TTC is: cancelling a route; introducing new branches of routes; cancelling branches of a route; increasing service along routes; decreasing service along routes; increasing the frequency of service along routes; decreasing the frequency of service along routes; revising the path for buses operating along routes; adjusting the schedules for buses operating along routes; and making other changes to service along routes.

Cancelling a route


103 Mt Pleasant North

Saturday, September 3 was the last day that the TTC operates buses along the route.

Starting Sunday, September 4, the TTC temporarily extends the 74 Mt Pleasant route to operate between Doncliffe Loop and St Clair Station.

The TTC says that ongoing Metrolinx construction of the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit line restricts it from turning buses at Mount Pleasant Road and Eglinton Avenue East.

Passengers travelling to or from Eglinton Station must transfer at Eglinton East and Mount Pleasant.

Southbound TTC buses operating along the 103 Mt Pleasant North route no longer drop off or pick up passengers at stops:

  • on Eglinton Avenue East at Redpath Avenue, across from Dunfield Avenue and at Yonge Street (Buses operating along routes 34, 51, 54, 334 and 354 continue to serve these stops) and
  • in Eglinton Station bus terminal (Routes 5, 32, 34, 51, 54, 56 and 61 continue).

Northbound TTC buses operating along the 103 Mt Pleasant North route no longer drop off or pick up passengers at stops:

  • on Duplex Avenue at Eglinton Avenue West,
  • on Eglinton Avenue East east of Holly Street and at Redpath Avenue (Buses operating along routes 34, 51, 54, 334 and 354 continue to serve these stops).

Service along this new branch replaces service along two branches of the 100 Flemingdon Park route and offers passengers faster service between Flemingdon Park and the 1 Yonge - University subway line.

Westbound buses start their trips on Grenoble Drive across from Spanbridge Road, then proceed:

eastward along Spanbridge;
northward along Linkwood Lane;

southward along Concorde and Wynford;

191 Highway 27 rocket

Starting Tuesday, September 6, buses operate along the new 191D (Kipling Station - Steeles via Royalcrest) branch, which is the main rush-hour service. Buses serving the new branch operate between Steeles Avenue West and Kipling Station and also serve Royalcrest Road / Highway 27 and Humber College. They do not operate through the Attwell Drive employment area, but provide fast, direct service along Highway 27 in both directions.

The TTC is also increasing service and increasing and decreasing the frequency of service along different parts of the route. It’s also adjusting the schedules for buses operating along the route.

131 Nugget

131F express branch

The TTC is continuing its program of rehabilitating the cars that operate along the 3 Scarborough rapid transit line. It’s temporarily withdrawing some cars from service to complete the work.

By removing cars from service, the TTC has fewer trains available to operate along the line. It’s maintaining summer service levels during rush hours throughout the fall.

To provide alternate service for passengers, the TTC’s increasing the frequency of service along the 131 Nugget route. It’s introducing this new express branch of the route, with frequent buses operating only between Scarborough Centre and Kennedy stations.

Starting Tuesday, September 6, some northbound express buses leaving Kennedy Station operate only as far as Scarborough Centre Station, along the 131F Nugget Express / To Scarborough Centre Station branch. Other northbound express buses operate to Scarborough Centre Station and then onwards to Old Finch Avenue along the 131E Nugget Express / To Old Finch branch. Buses serving the 131E branch drop off or pick up passengers at all local stops between Scarborough Centre and Old Finch.
