February 18, 1996

The TTC is making major service cuts and adjustments beginning Sunday, February 18, 1996. These changes, along with a major restructuring and downsizing and the closing of Lansdowne Garage, will compensate for reductions to the TTC's operating subsidy from the Ontario provincial and Metro Toronto governments in 1996. Each possible service-level reduction and each possible elimination of service on every route in the system, at every time of the week, was considered. The service cuts have been selected to keep the network as easy to use, quick, and comfortable as possible.

Summer Fare collection Procedures  on the 510 Harbourfront Line

  • The "Pay As You Leave / Free Ride" fare collection procedure will be used again this summer on the 510 HARBOURFRONT streetcar line to help provide more efficient service.  On weekends and holidays, starting May 18, no fares will be collected on the streetcars and no transfers will be issued.  After leaving the streetcar at Union Station, your fare will be collected as you enter the subway.  This lets us load the streetcars at all stops by both the front and centre doors, speeding up service.  As an added bonus, you can travel FREE between Queens Quay Station and Spadina & Queens Quay while visiting Harbourfront and other waterfront attractions.

  • You have to deposit the appropriate ticket, token or exact cash fare, or have a valid pass or transfer, after you leave the streetcar to enter the subway at Union Station, or when boarding other TTC services.  Streetcar and bus drivers, and the fare collectors at the streetcar loop at Union Station do not sell fares or make change.

  • This fare collection procedure will be in effect weekends and holidays from May 18 until Labour Day.
