Dangerous TTC Routes

The 5 most dangerous bus routes on the TTC

On most days, riding public transit in Toronto is fairly uneventful - unless there's a major delay of course. Today, however, the Toronto Star revealed a slew of data detailing the number of criminal and bylaw infractions that occurred on TTC bus routes between January 1, 2010 and August 10, 2015.

And that number totalled more 4,000, with fraud (952 incidents) - particularly Metropass fraud - and assaults on TTC drivers (896 incidents) coming up as the most common offences.

These are the routes with the most criminal and bylaw related infractions over that five year period, according to the Star:

1. 36 Finch West (322 incidents)
2. 35 Jane (260 incidents
3. 32 Eglinton West (164 incidents)
4. 41 Keele (161 incidents)
5. 52 Lawrence (123 incidents)

However, as the Star notes, the Lawrence East Night bus, as well as other Blue Night buses, had the most incidents per passenger when factoring in ridership numbers.

Yet, despite these findings, the Star writes that the TTC bus-related crime rate has been declining over the past three years.
