The TTC conducted a review of bus routes in the Junction Area with the goal of reducing customer journey time and providing more continuous service along major corridors.
In May 2018, TTC staff proposed service improvements to the bus network, which included more service on Parkside Drive and changes to the routes along the St. Clair West and Dundas West corridors. After these initial public consultations, late evening and Sunday and holiday Parkside Drive service was implemented in September 2018.
TTC received positive community feedback for the proposed service improvements at the local station consultations and open houses.
The new service improvements will go into effect on October 13, 2019.
