TTC Off-Peak Service Improvements Announced!

Many of the buses in the TTC fleet are accessible and can accomodate those with mobility issues.
The 53 Steeles East bus waits for passengers in Scarborough.

Mayor Tory and TTC Chair Councillor Colle recently announced service improvements to off-peak services for 33 bus and streetcar routes that will be implemented this fall. In addition to improvements to 61 routes announced in summer, these improvements largely reverse off-peak service cuts that were made in February 2012. Bus routes that serve our ward announced in this round of improvements are:

  • 39 Finch East
  • 42 Cummer
  • 53 Steeles East
  • 199 Finch Rocket

Upcoming:
Starting on September 6th, 169 Huntingwood will have expanded service to include evenings and on weekends. The route will run all day, every day, from 6 AM until 1 AM (beginning 9 AM on Sundays) with this change, with buses operating every 30 minutes. This is a substantial improvement over the existing limited service.
