Main

Service changes for February 1999

2 ANGLESEY

Service improvement

  • A new eastbound trip will be added in the afternoon peak period from Silverthorn Collegiate Institute, at Mill Road and Markland Drive (north intersection). The bus which now leaves eastbound from Rathburn and Mill Road at 3:23 p.m. will start in service northbound at Silverthorn C.I. at approximately 3:17 p.m., and operate to Royal York Station. This trip will provide service from this busy school in the afternoon, at little additional cost. The trip will be the only service scheduled to operate on Mill Road, between Markland Drive and Rathburn Road.

5 AVENUE RD

Service reduction

  • A trip which leaves from Oriole Parkway and Lonsdale (Upper Canada College) at 3:45 p.m. and runs to St. Clair Station will be removed. This trip was added in February 1996 to continue one busy trip of the 33 Forest Hill route, which was removed at that time as a result of the reductions in funding for transit by the municipal and provincial governments. The trip has been used by very few customers. 

6 BAY

Seasonal service ends

  • Early-evening service on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays will end after Labour Day. On Sunday, September 6, early-evening service will be operated at the divisional level.

50 BURNHAMTHORPE

Service reduction

  • The Monday to Friday late evening 50A BURNHAMTHORPE (Islington Stn-Mill Rd and Rathburn) service will be removed. The last trip on the route from Monday to Friday will now depart eastbound from Burnhamthorpe and Mill Road at 10:00 p.m., and westbound from lslington Station at 10:15 p.m. This last westbound trip will operate on the 50 BURNHAMTHORPE (Islington Stn-Mill Rd) branch, and will deadhead back to Queensway Division from the Burnhamthorpe/Mill Rd loop.

506/306 CARLTON

Track reconstruction

  • Because of the replacement of tangent and curved track on Coxwell Avenue, between Lower and Upper Gerrard streets, and the special track work at the intersection at Coxwell and Lower Gerrard, service on the 506/306 CARLTON streetcar route will be changed for the September board period. This track project will use, for the first time, the TTC's new temporary "top-on-track" crossovers.

  • From Monday to Friday, all service on the 506/306 CARLTON route will be provided with streetcars, which will operate on a single track past the construction site, using the temporary crossovers. Up to eight minutes of additional round-trip running time will be added, to allow for the temporary operation and any small delays which may result. Either one or two streetcars will be added, at different times. Headways will be unchanged from the normal non-summer service levels.

  • On all weekends during the board period, the temporary crossovers will either be set up, moved, or taken down, or the curved track will be rebuilt, or the special work at Gerrard and Coxwell will be under construction. Service on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, therefore, will be changed, so that 506/306 CARLTON Streetcars operate between High Park and the Queen/Coxwell Loop, and a replacement bus service is operated between Main Street Station and Broadview Avenue, looping via Gerrard, Broadview, Dundas, River, and Gerrard. During the one weekend when the special track work at Gerrard and Coxwell is rebuilt, streetcars will be diverted at the divisional level.

  • Buses will come from Danforth Division. Operators will be a mixture of Russell and Danforth operators.

121 FRONT-ESPLANADE

Seasonal service ends

  • Service to Ontario Place and Exhibition Place will end after Labour Day. All buses will turn at Bathurst Quay. Sunday and holiday service will end, and the hours of operation from Monday to Saturday will return to the hours operated in the March 1998 board period. On Sunday, September 6, service to Ontario Place and Exhibition Place will be operated at the divisional level. The split operation of the route as two branches during the afternoon peak period will be removed.

35 JANE

Stopping pattern changes

  • The stopping pattern of the 35E JANE EXPRESS (Jane Stn-York University) service will be changed, to speed up service for customers on the route, and to avoid the need for an increase in running time, which would increase the current 15 min headway. The stops at Dundas and Trethewey/Denison will be eliminated. Customers using the 35E branch at these stops will need to use the local service. With this change, the 35E branch will serve Jane Station,  Woolner/Foxwell,  Eglinton,  Weston  Road,  Lawrence,  Maple  Leaf/Church, Falstaff/Gordon MacKay, Wilson, and all stops at and north of Sheppard.

Service improvement

  • At the request of Vaughan Transit, the routing of the 35D (Jane Stn-Langstaff) branch will be changed at all times from Monday to Saturday, and service will be increased during the peak periods. The new routing for the 35D branch will be from Jane Station, north on Jane, west on Applewood, north on Edgeley, east on Courtland, south on Jane, east on Langstaff, south on Creditstone, west on Pippin, south on Jane to Jane Station. Before noon, buses will lay over on Pippin just east of Jane. After noon, buses will layover on Applewood, just west of Jane. This routing will improve service to the industrial areas east and west of Jane Street.
