Starting now, Jarvis to Bathurst will be limited for cars as it has been for the past little while since the project started, of course with the exceptions of taxis and deliveries at certain times.
As part of today's vote, city council also chose to make improvements to King Street along the corridor of the pilot and to continuing assessing the project's performance in the future.
It might be time to brush up on the rules before you head back down to King Street.
