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.
Please see below for more information on updates for 501/301 Queen route service west of Roncesvalles Ave.
Beginning on February 18, 2018, TTC is changing vehicle types on the 505 Dundas and 506 Carlton routes from streetcars to buses to maintain service on these routes during the ongoing streetcar shortage. To accommodate buses running on these routes, temporary stop adjustments will be completed in the following locations:
- Westbound Stop #986 Dundas St W at Morrow Avenue is being split between routes
- 505 Dundas will serve a relocated westbound stop on Dundas St W at Howard Park Ave closer to the intersection
- 506 Carlton will serve a new westbound stop on Howard Park Ave, immediately south-west of Dundas St W
- The northbound stop on Dundas St W at Bloor St W is being converted to a “drop-off only” stop
- High Park Loop will no longer be served. Buses are unable to operate in High Park Loop and are being redirected to High Park Station
- Eastbound Dundas St W at Howard Park Avenue is being adjusted and will be located approximately 15 metres west of the current location
Are you sick of being sardined?
Join transit day of action on Tuesday, January 30.
We’re calling on John Tory and City Council to fund 2-hour fares, better TTC service to fix overcrowding, and the promised low-income Fair Pass in the 2018 City Budget.
This is a crucial time to take action for better transit, before Council votes on Feb. 12 and 13 on the last budget before the election.
Join TTCriders as we hand out flyers and talk to thousands of transit riders impacted by overcrowding, unreliable service, and unaffordable fares.
Can you help us reach more riders?
There are 1.8 million transit riders in Toronto. Let’s work together to win better transit.
