ttc route changes

TTC just made changes to 37 bus and streetcar routes and here's the complete list

The TTC just made 37 route changes affecting many people who take the bus on Toronto's public transit system, as well as some streetcar and subway riders.

The changes will mostly lead to longer wait times, and combined with the latest shocking violence on the TTC will undoubtedly cause some riders to look elsewhere for their transit needs.

A recent study indicated that the changes severely affect marginalized residents and impact Scarborough more than any other area of the city.

The changes come around the same time that TTC fares are going up with most riders asked to pay an additional 10 cents per ride starting April 3.

Here's a list of all the TTC route changes as detailed by the TTC.
