The TTC promises major service upgrade on 52 routes

The TTC announced today that it will make significant service upgrades to 52 routes in an effort to achieve a network that features 10 minutes or better service from 6am to 1am. It's isn't a Downtown Relief Line or some other bit of much-needed transit infrastructure, but increased frequency of service does make commuter's lives better in a concrete way.

Well, that is if they can actually achieve that level of service. It's worth noting that this is a goal the Commission has set rather than an actual promise. Some routes have already had their service bumped, while the rest on the list will be ramped up over the summer with an eye towards a full roll out by the fall. The improvements will be made to the subway as well as 12 streetcar and 37 bus routes.
