The City and TTC launched the King Street Transit Pilot Sunday, November 12, 2017 to improve transit reliability, speed and capacity along the 504 King route between Bathurst and Jarvis Street. Route 504 is the TTC’s busiest streetcar or bus route.

Since the pilot, the City says, the number of passengers aboard streetcars on King has increased by nearly 17 per cent to 84,000 riders per day. Afternoon rush-hour travel times have improved by about four to five minutes (decreasing from about 25 minutes to 20 minutes).

According to the City staff report, vehicle travel times during the morning and afternoon rush hours on east-west streets parallel to King have increased by just less than a minute. On north-south streets, travel times are nearly the same.

The report also recommends making permanent the transit stops that the City and TTC relocated to the far side of most intersections, including relocating transit shelters, where feasible.

The City’s Executive Committee will consider the staff’s report during its meeting Tuesday, April 9. The Toronto Transit Commission — the TTC board of directors — discusses the report Thursday, April 11 and Toronto City Council reviews the staff recommendations Tuesday, April 16 and Wednesday, April 17.
