September 8, 1957 - October 14, 1957

Service begins on a special Sundays and Holidays bus service linking Eglinton subway station with Edwards Gardens near the corner of Leslie Street and Lawrence Avenue. Buses operate from Bay 10 at Eglinton subway station via north on Duplex, east on Eglinton, north on Bayview, east on Post Road, the Bridle Path and Lawrence, stopping at the entrance to Edwards Gardens. From there, buses operate east to loop clockwise around the traffic island at the Leslie/Lawrence intersection, returning west for a pick-up stop at the Edwards Gardens gate and then back to Eglinton subway station via the reverse route. Buses operate every forty minutes from 2:00 p.m. to 7:20 p.m.. Regular TTC fares and transfer privileges apply, with a zone boundary operated on the Don River bridge on Bayview Avenue just north of Lawrence.
