The TTC is initiating a Five-Year Service Plan and 10-Year Outlook to build on our Corporate Plan (2018-2022) and strengthen Toronto’s mobility network. The Plan and Outlook will set a vision and identify strategies and actions to improve mobility so that residents from Toronto and outlying areas can access the many employment, educational and cultural opportunities our great city has to offer.
In order to achieve this, TTC is asking Torontonians for their feedback through a short five minute on-line survey available at the following link: TTC5YearServicePlan.metroquest.ca.
The survey will close on July 26, 2019 and results will help the TTC develop a blueprint to improve surface transit service.

Art is an important component of major station upgrades (including the Easier Access and Second Exit construction improvement projects). On June 5, 2017, TTC unveiled art concepts for 7 stations that are either under construction or scheduled for construction in the near future. The art installations at Runnymede Station are up. Elicser Elliot worked on these pieces titled Anonymous Somebody. More information regarding TTC Public Art Program can be found at http://www.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Projects/Public_art/index.jsp

Starting on Tuesday, November 6 after Monday subway service ends, a track crew will be working overnight between Keele and Dundas West stations to conduct essential track maintenance. The work will involve tamping areas of track between the two stations. The overnight maintenance activity will also occur on Wednesday and Thursday nights.
506 Carlton streetcar service will be restored with bus supplement. From September 2nd to October 6, 2018, there will be a temporary bus diversion due to streetcar tracks replacement at Dundas and Lansdowne. Details are provided below.
Fair Pass Discount Program was approved by Toronto City Council in 2016 as a poverty reduction initiative to make transit more affordable for low income residents. Other initiatives include making transit free for children 12 years of age and under and implementing a universal two-hour transfer.
The Fair Pass Discount Program addresses this gap for the many low income residents who rely on public transit to carry out basic daily activities, attend necessary appointments and benefit from opportunities and resources available to them in this great city.
Details of this program are in the document below.
