TTC gets fancy to explain service changes during TIFF

Toronto always feels a little more glamorous during TIFF thanks to the flock of movie stars who descend upon our city - even the TTC is becoming glitzier. That's because two TTC execs star in their own film to explain the service changes happening this weekend thanks to the upcoming Festival Street fair.

Executive director of corporate communications Brad Ross and CEO Andy Byford suit up in front of Roy Thomson Hall - the site of numerous TIFF galas - to clarify how the upcoming King Street West road closure will affect TTC riders.

Festival Street runs from University to Peter on September 10-13. By using animations, Byford describes how the eastbound 504 streetcar will turn back at University while the westbound one will stop at Bathurst before heading north up to Bathurst Station. Along with the streetcar, buses will be running throughout the day and not just at rush hour, he says.

Watch the full video and learn about all of the service disruptions below.

More info on the service changes available via the TTC web site.
