64 Main

Compiled by Pete Coulman

May 11, 1968

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.

Service is extended north from Main Station to via north on Main and east on Lumsden to Eastdale looping via south on Eastdale, west on Secord, south on Barrington, and west on Doncaster to Main, returning south on Main. Buses loop in both directions through Main Street station. Coincident with this change 91D/91E WOODBINE “East York Acres” buses are rerouted via Main Street.

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.

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.
