TTC Route Changes Bus

Proposed route changes on the TTC also problematic

Along with today's announcement regarding a potential 10 cent fare hike, TTC Chair Karen Stintz also revealed a set of recommendations for route changes. "With increased ridership, TTC staff propose, effective March 27, the reallocation of some weekend and/or late night weekday bus service on routes where ridership is extremely low. It is proposed that this service be reallocated to ensure service levels at rush hour and midday, for example, meet the forecast increase in ridership."

Although these are being pawned off as something different than a "cut," reduced service in off-peak hours will no doubt be a major headache for those who rely on the routes listed below. Numerous buses will no longer offer service outside of peak hours and after 10 p.m. every day of the week. Also problematic is possibility that the TTC doesn't have enough vehicles to reallocate all of these losses to peak service hours (when most of the fleet is already in service).

The fare hike is certainly the big story today, but the cut/shifts are far more significant than the short shrift Ford and Stintz's statements might have one believe.
