Coincident with a re-organization of bus services along Eglinton Avenue, service begins on a new 124 SUNNYBROOK bus, replacing portion of the 28 DAVISVILLE and 11 BAYVIEW routes, and restoring a route name that had not been used since 1954. Buses operate between Lawrence station and Sunnybrook Hospital via Lawrence and Bayview. During rush hours, every third bus operates via Mildenhall and St. Leonards, westbound in the morning and eastbound in the afternoon. This is not listed as a separate branch, initially, but by 2002, this service was referred to as 124A. The route is operated from Eglinton Garage.
