Coincident with the opening of the BLOOR-DANFORTH SUBWAY extension from Woodbine to Warden stations, the presence of Main Street station allows the TTC to split the old 62 MORTIMER-MAIN into 62 MORTIMER operating north and west from the station and 64 MAIN operating south from the station. 64 MAIN buses operate from Main Street station via south on Main and Southwood, west on Williamsoon and south on Wineva to Queen, returning via west on Queen, north on Hambly, east on Williamson and north on Southwood and Main to the subway. Service operates seven days a week, 18 hours a day.

Track reconstruction on Queen Street forces a diversion at the south end of the line. Buses operate over the normal route to Southwood and Williamson and then loop via east and south on Glen Manor, west on Queen and north on Wineva and east on Williamson to Southwood and route.

April 19, 2005

As track reconstruction on Queen moves further along Queen Street east, service on 64 MAIN returns to normal, although the TTC augments service on the route to cover for the fact that streetcars aren’t operating on Queen Street east of Kingston Road.

October 8, 2016

Last day of operation north of Main Street station. Effective the next day, 64 MAIN buses operate south of Main Street station only, ending service on its northern loop, which operated via north on Main, east on Lumsden, south on Eastdale, west on Secord, south on Barrington, west on Doncaster, and south on Main Street.

Service on Lumsden, Eastdale, Secord, Barrington and Doncaster was already duplicated by the 87 COSBURN, which operates as part of the TTC’s 10-minute network. Service on Main between Doncaster and Lumsden is not replaced, but this street is one block away from stops on the 62 MORTIMER route, operating on Chisholm Avenue.
