Revising the paths for buses operating along routes


404 East York community bus

Tuesday, **September 5, the TTC starts a nine-month pilot project to test ways to enhance service along two of its community bus routes.

During the pilot, buses operate along the routes more frequently and stop at more locations. The pilot aims to increase ridership by providing passengers with more convenient and accessible travel options for getting around their neighbourhood.

Community buses use the same type of vehicles as Wheel-Trans, and stop at the front doors of many buildings and landmarks, including seniors’ residences, shops, malls, community centres and hospitals along their neighbourhood routes. These vehicles serve regular bus stops but passengers can also be flag the driver to stop at any location along the route where safe to do so. While anyone can ride a community bus, its features make it a convenient travel option for seniors and people with disabilities.

For this route, the TTC is extending the path for buses operating along the route from Shoppers World Danforth to Kew Gardens and from Michael Garron (Toronto East General) Hospital to Coxwell Station.

Transit agencies often interline two or more routes with a common terminal to save resources — meaning the number of drivers and the number of vehicles to provide the services. During summer, for example, when buses operating along the 49 Bloor West route arrive in Kipling Station Sundays and holidays, they continue along the 30 Lambton route to High Park. After the bus returns to Kipling, it continues along the 49 Bloor West route.
