Scarborough just got a new TTC bus route
It'll be a lot easier to travel around Scarborough this fall with the introduction of a brand new bus: the 12D Kingston.
The TTC announced that plans for the 12D Kingston Road service, which will operate from Victoria Park Station to the U of T Scarborough Campus, will begin its one-year pilot starting October 9.
Promise made. Promise kept! Pleased to be joined by Mayor Tory, my Council colleagues Cllr Ainslie and TTC Josh Colle to officially launch the continuous Kingston Rd. TTC bus service. #ward36 pic.twitter.com/oJwARRGNfY— Gary Crawford (@CllrCrawford) July 28, 2018
The bus will come every half hour during rush hour from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and every 25 minutes between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
It comes as part of the TTC's plan to ease the commute in Scarborough, especially along major corridors like Lawrence Avenue East, Morningside Avenue and Kingston Road.
After its first year, TTC staff will decide whether or not ridership and the demand justifies making it a permanent route in Scarborough.
